Professional & EthicalChris was at all time professional and easy to deal with, prompt responses, as well as mindful of the vendor and my requirements match all up to our satisfaction. Never pushy, however I was confident knowing that he was dealing in an ethical manner. I so appreciate the knowledge in terms of rural properties. Thank you Chris, I really appreciated your gentle support.
The Easiest Most Hassle Free Sale We Have Ever ExperiencedCorey contacted us to advise about a recent price increase in our area in case we were considering selling. His timing was perfect, though we were initially hesitant after unsuccessfully trying to sell the property through another agent about a year ago. Our concerns were unfounded and only wish we had of known of Corey previously. He sold our property quickly it almost took us by surprise. He communicated with us every step of the way, from updating us on open attendances and interested parties to his conversations and progress with potential buyers. We have never before felt so confident in an agents abilities (and we have bought and sold many times over the years). If you are after a professional with passion who has their finger on the pulse regarding the current market, we highly recommend Corey.
Would Highly RecommendCorey was very great to deal with when purchasing our house.
Very Happy Seller!Super happy with the sale. Tash is very engaging, very informative and goes above and beyond for her clients.
Great Selling ExperienceChris did an amazing job selling our home within 2 weeks. Very honest and updated us along the whole process. Would definitely recommend. Very professional.
Sale of Country PropertyChris gave me confidence from the beginning. He had and has an excellent knowledge of the market and a fine memory of recent and long term sales in the area. He was always professional but friendly and personable as well. I always felt that Chris was doing his best for me and has a good sense of when and how to sell. His communication skills and manner are highly commendable.
Chris Was GreatChris was fantastic. He went above and beyond to achieve the outcome we wanted. Very professional.
Wonderful AgentCatharina was a wonderful agent. She understood our requirements and worked hard on the campaign to sell the house. Catharina was very well researched on the current market trends and potential buyers. She was also a good listener and empathetic to our personal situation. I highly recommend Catharina,
Paramount in helping me purchase my first home.Penny Shields from PRD Ballarat was paramount in helping me purchase my first home. Penny's excellent communication skills, transparency and willingness to offer support made an otherwise stressful experience bearable. Thank-you for all of the support that has been offered during my buying journey.
Extremely professional and helpful.Used PRD to lease out our property in Nerrina. Extremely professional and helpful. Superb towards the end of the lease when the tenant tried to break the lease. Very happy with the service from Melanie, Stacey and Brendan. Thanks PRD Ballarat.
Professional, friendly and efficient.I highly recommend the team at PRD Nationwide Ballarat and in particular Robert McClure. At all times Rob, who handled the sale of my property, was professional, friendly and efficient. The advertising campaign was excellent. My property sold in the first few weeks of being advertised with the final sale price far exceeding my expectations. A fantastic result.
Experience and wisdom well beyond many other managers.I have used PRD Nationwide as our property manager now for several years. In particular, Stacey Hayes has been our manager and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to take the stress out of maintaining an investment property portfolio. Stacey has experience and wisdom well beyond many other managers. She is efficient, thorough and detailed in all her actions. She is fair to both tenants and landlords and works well to keep everyone in the loop. Communications is one of her many strengths. I have no problem trusting her to deal with any problem that may arise through property leasing.
Perfect in every way! Thank you!Catharina was amazing. She sold our investment property so quickly. We honestly couldn’t be any happier. From start to finish she kept us updated and explained every stage perfectly. If we were to sell again we will be asking Catharina to help us. Thank you Catharina!!
⭐️Chris went above and beyond in all aspects of this sale. Nothing was too much trouble His professional manner and approach to all was in this current climate a wonderful thing to be seen . I would recommend him to anyone
Excellent experienceIt was a pleasure to purchase a house with the guidance of Catharina. All encounters were exceptionally professional, her knowledge and advice was exactly what was needed and she was willing to think outside of the box to ensure everything went smoothly.
Great to deal with and an excellent communicator.We first came in contact with Chris when looking for our own "Escape to the Country". We found his easy going country nature very welcoming, but also very professional in his approach. What impressed me the most about Chris was his ability to remember names and what you were looking for in a property, combined with his excellent communication skills. At all stages with the purchase of our new home he balanced his responsibility to his client, but kept us informed of the process. Simply put you get what see with Chris and that's what we liked. We would recommend him to anyone either searching for, or looking to sell a home.
Very happy with the result Chris achieved for us.From the start Chris presented very knowledgeable and provided us with market research of the area. His friendly manner and professionalism made us feel at ease every step on the way.
Outstanding Client ContactChris Leonard is the most proactive and professional real estate agent that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I have bought and sold many properties throughout Victoria and used a lot of different agents and Chris is by far the best I have found. Chris was informative, understanding and thorough from our initial contact right through to a successful sale. Despite the challenges we were all facing throughout the covid 19 pandemic Chris ensured I was regularly updated throughout the process of marketing my property and always very prompt to respond to my queries and enquiries from potential buyers which resulted in a successful outcome for all concerned. Thank you Chris. You're the best!
Sensational experienceHardworking, honest, and exemplary communication.
Great pleasure to highly praise Penny ShieldsIt is great pleasure to highly praise Penny Shields on the sale of our property Unit 6/320 Joseph Street, Canadian, Ballarat 3350. On Penny's first inspection her advice was to de-clutter personal items, add some matching colors and some compliments through. Bank evaluation was ? price, Penny kindly as of what we could expect as sale price I advised $15,000 over expected $. On open day I was at work and received an offer $25,000 above bank evaluation and $5,000 more than expected. It is with great thanks to Penny our new home can be completed and she made arrangement for us to rent the house till completion of our home. Truly well-presented, prompt and professional. Would not hesitate to recommend PRD & Penny for any sales or buying purpose.
Smooth and Speedy SaleCatharina Hartzheim was by far the best out of several agents my wife and I interviewed. She came over as confident and competent, and appeared genuinely interested in our house. The property was sold within a week of coming on the market at a very fair price. I wish I had more properties to sell so that I could rehire Catharina.
Professionalism with a smile!Chris was a fantastic point of contact throughout the process of purchasing our block. We were very comfortable dealing with him, he tells it like it is, was always prompt in his responses to any queries we had and made the whole experience so much easier for us! We would definitely recommend him as an agent if you’re looking for someone who is honest, friendly and knowledgable. And half your luck if Chris is selling the rural block you’ve been searching for! He is a pleasure to deal with.
No bs Agent. Highly recommend. Professional.Dealing with Chris from PRD real estate Ballarat was made very easy. Being the first piece of land my wife and I have purchased, we were a little nervous. Any questions possibly stupid were answered by Chris and made us feel comfortable. Chris is very prompt at returning any questions. If in the market again we will be contacting Chris.
Fantastic agentMy partner and I purchased a home through Chris with PRD Nationwide in early 2020. I cannot recommend him enough. Chris is honest, reliable and attentive. He works hard to make time for you to view the property and ensure all your questions are answered. He is friendly, very easy to communicate with and has years of experience. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to sell a home with him.
Great communicatorPenny provided timely advice and was in regular communication with us throughout what can be a difficult process. A fantastic professional who worked tirelessly to achieve a great outcome. Penny is highly recommended.
Great Team to Sell propertyFrom the beginning of my engagement with Chris & the team at PRD, it was a pleasure to deal with them. They were extremely professional and friendly during the entire process. Chris went above & beyond to sell my property in just 3 weeks during COVID-19 for a good price. He remained accessible during whole process and updated us regularly with the number of inspections, interested parties, bidding & final sale. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris & his team to sell your property.
Delightful Property Management ServicesWe just wanted to let you know how delighted we have been with the property management services that Michael Darken has provided. We met Michael late last year when we were thinking of letting our Ballarat East property. While that property is still not ready for leasing, Michael has successfully let our Ballan property at a higher price than our local real estate agents suggested was possible. Beyond the financial success, we really appreciated Michael's good communication skills: timely emails and timely phone calls.
Don is a champion!Don is a champion! He is honest, reliable, and highly professional. He only showed us properties that ticked our criteria. And he found us the house that was exactly that we wanted. We were so happy with ALL his work, so much so, that we asked him to sell our home. His communication skills, expertise and love for his work in real estate really shone through. A gentleman in all ways who is respectful of his clients listening intently to their wishes. We highly highly recommend Don and the Team at PRD who worked so hard for us. Thank you Don for finding us the home that we were exactly looking for.

Seamless TransitionA single phone call to Chris has changed our lives. From the first inspection to settlement day, Chris has maintained contact and keep us informed during the entire process. His always cheerful demeanour and helpful nature has made all business dealings with him a pleasure. Kettle is on whenever your passing through Chris.

Mel is extremely professional, her communication was fantastic, and I can honestly say I was blown away with how easy Mel made everything. Would highly recommend.
land PurchaseAlthough technically not the hardest sale Chris has made his knowledge and guidance through the entire process has been fantastic. Chris has an amazing connection with his clients both as purchasers and sellers and works tirelessly for all parties. At no stage did I feel stressed or pressured and I look forward to dealing with PRD Ballarat and Chris Leonard again in the future. A real estate agent that's completely genuine and cares for those involved. Thanks again Chris
Brilliant operator. Professional, friendly, helpful & honest to a tee.I had seen Chris Leonard in a few of his property sale videos & always thought he came across well. Dealing with him in person was no exception. He has always made himself available to us on relatively short notice & been very accommodating. He never made us feel like we were an inconvenience or burden. CL is an all round good bloke, is transparent & was even great with the kids! His knowledge of the area & property was second-to-none. He was not arrogant or pushy in the slightest. Definitely someone my wife & I could have a beer with. Thanks Chris!
Clear and timely communicationI’m a new tenant with PRD Ballarat and have been leasing through Michael Darken. We’ve been really impressed with his initiative and work ethic. Michael secured a rental for us before it was even advertised. He was careful in ensuring the property was clean before we moved in. He has organized for all maintenance issues to be a resolved promptly. We have been impressed by his clear and timely communication. Michael has given us a very good impression of PRD Ballarat. We are very pleased to be renting through him.
Chris is without doubt the most enthusiastic Agent I knowChris was methodical in his approach to my sale, excellent communicator and always a can do attitude, I can not recommend Chris enough, a job well done.
Pleasure to deal withConsummate Professional. Don is a pleasure to deal with. If you ask for an honest appraisal, you get it. He neither inflates nor deflates prices to steal the listing. Highly recommend Don to anyone who needs a straightforward no-your-stuff agent :)
Friendly and efficientPenny was quick to respond and very pleasant to deal with. Positive purchasing process.
Really AmazingWhat can I say? I rang Don and told him I wanted to sell one of two of my town houses
ProfessionalDon is the true professional... experience and customer care. He impressed us with his knowledge of the market and delivered the best price he had quoted. We were over the moon.
Sale of 114A Daylesford Road, Brown HillWe found Chris to be a great to deal with and an excellent communicator, especially given we struck a couple of hurdles during the "Under Contract" period, but Chris was always positive and very supportive in assisting us to get the final sale outcome.
Great experiencePenny was very helpful throughout the process of selling our block of land. Always kept us updated and was always reachable. Got an offer on land just after few days of putting the land on sale. Would definitely recommend Penny.
In an extremely difficult time, Don made the sale of my home so much easier.Anyone who has sold their home can tell you what a stressful time it is but to list just prior to COVID19 restrictions and then to have to change from Auction to Private sale at a moment's notice could have been a nightmare but it wasn't and I was happy with the outcome of my sale. Don made the business so much easier as he knew the market and I could trust his experience. Don communicated with me every step of the way so that I felt that we 'were on the same page'. Always the professional but with the right amount of humour when appropriate, I am so pleased that I chose Don and PRD to sell my home.
A fast sale and a great result!Chris goes above and beyond for his Vendors. We were selling our family home on behalf of my Dad who has moved into aged care. Aside from being able to offer a lot of information around market values and comparable sales, Chris also helped us to prepare the property for sale, assisting with odd jobs around the place and finding people that could help to get the work done. The advertising campaign drew a lot of interest and we had multiple buyers making offers on the property right from the beginning. We were very pleased with the eventual result and couldn't thank Chris enough for his efforts. I would highly recommend his services to any other prospective Vendor.
Excellent agentI have purchased and sold propertly over the year with Chris. His market knowledge and professional standard makes him the best in the business. I have and will always use and highly recommend Chris into the future.
Very professional at her jobVery helpful and very good at her job.
Really clear and direct communication. Easy to deal withDon was very easy to deal with. His communication style is clear and direct. Always called following an open home and provided open and transparent information about interested parties, their feedback and opinions. Very easy to deal with and felt confident that he was working hard for me as the vendor. Highly rate his abilities to obtain a sale and the outcome for the vendor.
Helpful and EasyChris was extremely helpful when we purchased our land. He comes from the area so it was good to have someone that knew the area and was able to help us through the process of buying. We were very happy with his service throughout the process and highly recommend him to future buyers.
One word - professionalMagnificent experience She made it so easy
Selling our Family homePenny was very professional with the selling of our family home. It was in our family for over 50years and we would have liked it to go to another family or young couple. After every open Penny would call me and give me an update, stating 'I don't think we've found our buyers just yet' until one day she stated that she thought she had found them We were very happy that a young couple have bought our home and hopefully they'll make as many happy memories as we did Penny always updated and answered any queries without hesitation and in a timely manner. Very happy with our result especially with Covid-19 causing a few issues. Thanks again Penny.

Positive from start to finishI first met Richard a year or so ago when seeking an appraisal on my property. Richard was thorough in his approach and it was clear he had a very good understanding of the Ballarat market. Without any pressure or hard sell, he kept in touch over the following months until some time later when I had decided to go ahead with the sale. Upon listing my property, Richard was diligent in keeping me informed of buyer enquiries and worked hard to find the right purchaser. Having just sold my property, I am very satisfied with the overall experience and would not hesitate to recommend Richard to anyone thinking of selling.
Excellent communicator with real experiencePenny was able to achieve a good result in spite of the difficulties of dealing with COVID-19 restrictions, he ability to adapt to changing circumstances has been amazing Her professionalism, dedication and professionalism paid off, we are very happy with our sale outcome.

Overall Good ExperienceHappy with the way Chris handled our sale from start to finish. Nailed the pricing, very punctual and pleasant to deal with.
Very efficient and helpfulRichard's knowledge and enthusiasm made for a quick, painless and positive experience. His friendly, professional attitude, was a pleasant bonus.
Charming and reassuringAs first time homebuyers, our knowledge was limited and having already endured some awful experiences with other real estates agents and conveyancers and brokers, we were feeling pretty disillusioned. Penny was a complete flip. She was wonderfully friendly, supportive and informative. She kept me up to date and checked in from time to time which was very reassuring. My partner and I are very happy to have purchased our first home through Penny and she made sure it was a joyful experience for us in the end. It wasn’t just another job or pay check, she had genuine interest in assisting us as buyers. I will happily use her services in the future.

A truely dedicated agent to not only PRD but also to her vendor and purchaser alike. Thank you for making this experience a totally stress free one.
Go Straight To The Top!If you need one name in Real Estate , Chris Leonard is your man ! He was professional but there is a difference I just couldn’t put my finger on it at first meeting . I realise now after selling with him , it was straight forward, confident and an easy process. We looked forward to his phone calls , because he genuinely cared and listened to our needs. A true gentleman! We sold our home in less than a week of being listed .. The process was considered , relaxed and personable .. Thank you PRD.. But more to the point , Chris Leonard ..
What a Champion!What can I say?! Richard has been an absolute champion throughout the whole process of buying our first home. Not only was he extremely welcoming and knowledgeable about the property we were viewing, he made sure he communicated very clearly between us and the vendors when we needed it the most. He was a major influence on the whole operation and we are extremely grateful for his efforts and care. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to either buy or sell their property. Thanks Rich
Purchasing a property under covid 19 conditionsChris has excellent knowledge of the area and the property. My wife and I purchased during covid 19 lockdown, so the amount of questions I had for chris were increased extensively. Chris had the answers to 95% of my questions and followed up very quickly the other 5% (well outside of business hours at times) to supply the answer correctly and promptly. Chris is a professional and it shows in the way he conducts business. Thanks Chris.
Fulfilled my expectation in selling my landCatharina was very dedicated, committed, no communication gap, no false promises, energetic and trustworthy person. She never put her clients down and try to provide the output as she promised. I was so happy when my land got sold to my expectations.

She is easy to contact and works very hard to get the right price. I really appreciate all she has done for my sales experience with her, and would recommend her to any buyer or seller.
Very impressed with PRD and RichardRichard has sold 2 houses for us in the past 6 months. In very trying Covid19 circumstances Richard was able to arrange viewing and sales very quickly. The first home in Delacombe was sold in about 3 weeks. Richard kept us up the date with update on inspections and we followed his marketing recommendations and advice. All the staff we were in contact with were very professional and thorough, they sent us beautiful gifts upon the settlements to. A lovely big bunch of Australian flowers for one settlement and a box arrived with lots and chocolates and a bottle sprakling wine with the other settlement. We would without doubt recommend PRD to anyone.
Friendly and efficientDamian has been a pleasure to work with. He has gone out of his way to answer the many questions and queries we have had in relation to purchasing our property, and no question has been too large or small. We greatly appreciated Damian's friendly common sense approach and his keen knowledge of the real estate market. All up, he helped us feel comfortable with the decisions we made, and we remain so!

The best real estate I ever had to deal withTash Martin is a very experienced real estate agent who is very approachable, honest, punctual and takes pride in her work. Tash is always responsive to assist me in an expedited manner and is willing to go an extra mile to help with her professional advice. Truly a pleasure to work with. You will not go wrong with Tash.
Friendly, professional and knowledgeablePRD were a pleasure to deal with at all times. Tash was on to all the issues from day 1. With full disclosure of all aspects of the sale process, she kept us up to date with information, offers and requirements as it happened. Tash's intimate knowledge of the local market was invaluable in achieving the sale of our house within 4 days of it going live on realestate.com.au. Would highly recommend Tash for your own real estate journey.
One of the best Real Estate agents I have dealt withTash has great knowledge of the local area and community. Tash has kept in constant communication and always calls back if she has missed our phone call. We have been very pleased with her positive attitude, caring personality and excellent professionalism. Thank you.
Tash helped us sell our house in Creswick.Tash was the complete professional. She knew her local market thoroughly. We found her very honest and reliable throughout the process. She was very friendly and approachable which made things a lot easier. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house around Creswick.
Tash is extremely friendly and and makes the experience of selling a property relaxed.Tash was spot on when giving an estimate of our property value and very positive and enthusiastic with the marketing of our property.
Number 1 Down to earth and friendly !!Sold 2 Properties through Tash, both were sold within weeks with no fuss! Tash is a local and her knowledge of the area is very experienced! Will sell again through Tash no question. Thanks Tash great work.0
Fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable local agentWe bought our country cottage through Tash six years ago and found her to be very professional and friendly, so she was the natural choice for us when we came to sell it. Tash has an excellent knowledge of the local market and the estimated value she gave for our property was spot on. Due to her superb networking skills we sold our house within 2 weeks through her existing customer base....it didn’t even make it to the internet. No costly advertising fees, no weeks of trying to maintain a house in pristine condition for opens for inspection, no styling required. She is fantastic and we can’t recommend her highly enough. Wish she could come and sell our Melbourne house for us!!
She is an absolute gemEven during COVID it did not stop Tash for finding a buyer for my mother’s home. She is professional,honest and will do her best to help in any way she can
Tash Renewed my faith back into realestate agentsTash was so great. Seamless process, efficient and regular communication. She passionately showed people through our property. Giving me plenty of notice to have the house ready for inspections. Always a pleasant and happy nation. Which makes it much easier and very approachable when needing to communicate something to her. Tash has made our lives so much easier in selling our property. We would highly recommend Tash without a doubt. Don't go anywhere else. You wont find another agent in the area that really listens and works hard to get that price you are looking for. We hope to see Tash up in lights as Property Manager of the year.

Tash is a trusted, vibrant agent of ours over many years!While tash presents a no-nonsense approach, this by no way means she doesnt know her market, both for seller and buyer. Tash has a friendly, calm demeanor that exudes confidence and trustworthiness that is not often afforded to estate agents. We have no trouble freely recommending tash to anyone buying or selling, she has been a pleasure to deal with as buyers and sellers, we thank her and wish her well for the future....peter & phil

Diligent and PositivePenny was a lovely agent who explained every step of the process and all of the options available to us which we appreciated as first time sellers. She gave good advice but gave us the freedom to make our own decisions and was positive throughout the whole experience. Penny is a great communicator and assisted us to sell our house very quickly and we were very happy with the result of our sale. She is hard working and we definitely recommend Penny as an agent.
Easy and pleasant.Local knowledge and willingness to be fully flexible and helpful made our buying experience really easy. Some agents seem to only care about making the sale, Chris was a "Real" person, who genuinely cared about both the buying experience and the sellers needs.

Experience WinsWe recently sold acreage and a house in the Lal Lal area. Due to Chris’s years of experience in this area and his knowledge of potential buyers we felt very confident that he would be able to sell our house quickly and for a competitive price. Chris delivered. He is professional and a straight talker. He takes a special interest in your specific situation and is a good communicator. He works hard for the sale and we recommend him highly.
Outstanding!When asked to write a review for Penny Shields, the first thing that came to mind was what the great American poet and civil rights activist, Maya Angelou, once stated: " I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." During a most exciting but bittersweet journey, Penny was able to give us the most important gift: Peace of Mind. Dr. Angelou would be proud. Penny Shields is the real deal. It is impossible to list all her attributes here. Yes, her tenacity and sharp mind are two fine qualities which serve her well in being the talented Agent she is. But, let it be known that, whatever task Penny sets out to do, she brings along a very special combination of empathy, integrity and sincerity. These attributes, accompanied by her quick wit and humble attitude, are what have ultimately won our hearts....never mind that she did an outstanding job of selling our beloved family home!! Pick Penny, and you'll never lose!
Stress freeCatharina always kept us informed on the progress of the sale. Friendly and honest to deal with. Would highly recommend Catharina and will use her again on our next project.
Genuine and sincere is Chris Leonard approach to selling and marketing.Chris had an excellent repour with us from the beginning and his sound knowledge of the market and marketing skills led to a successful sale in a relatively short time .

We had an offer very quickly in the range we were looking for, and Penny kept me up to date at all stages of the process and discussions. I thoroughly recommend Penny for her knowledge, professionalism, communication and positive support through the process of selling a property in Ballarat.
Would buy off Chris againChris was easy going and easy to deal with.
Chris was friendly and easy to communicate with.Chris was very accommodating regarding inspection times. Chris always kept the lines of communication open. Chris was a pleasure to do business with.
Organised, Professional CommunicatorCatharina Hartzheim was a pleasure to deal with as I purchased a property. She was knowledgeable about the local market, and handled the negotiations with the vendors evenings and weekends, as needed. While an agent is paid by the vendor, I nonetheless felt that my interests as a buyer were also important to Catharina. She made an extra effort to ensure that I received the documents (such as owners' corporation minutes) that I wanted before the purchase became unconditional. She ensured that another agent in her office was available to help when Catharina herself took a brief holiday. Catharina Hartzheim impressed me as an organised, professional communicator (with a pleasant & friendly manner).
Seamless and trouble freeChris was easy to talk to and responsive to questions we had. A great communicator and consummate professional in every way. Well done, Chris. 5 Stars for you..
We found Tash to be friendly, reliable, honest, and easy to relate to.Tash was knowledgeable and communicated clearly what she felt the current market values were whilst being very willing to listen to our expectations.

Extremely experienced & trustworthyDon is a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. His knowledge of the local market and drive to achieve the best outcome is the reason why we have chosen to work with Don multiple times.
Professional with a PassionDon never failed in dealing with my property in the best manner possible for the vendor. His attitude and professionalism shone thru inn all dealing and whilst his patience was tested at times, it never daunted him in representing his client to the max. Thanks Don
Honest, professional and reliableAn honest valuation was given as Don produced comparison valuations to help us understand market value. We were informed of the reactions after opens soon after, as we were keen to be kept up-to-date at all times. We ended up with a stress-less sale that went through settlement with no problems at all. We have used PRD in our past two house sales along with purchasing our current house through them.
Always available, always returned callsMy experience was all good
Efficient, friendly and professionalWe found Don to be extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. He kept us informed every step of the way throughout the process of selling our property.
Highly recommended.I have now had the pleasure of buying and selling a property through Catharina, and cannot recommend her highly enough. I have always found Catharina to be genuine, professional and very clear and timely with her communication. As a buyer I would certainly favour any properties being sold by her, and as a seller I wouldn't even consider any other agent. Thank you Catharina and the rest of the team at PRD.
Best agent ever.We could not have been happier with anyone else. Catherine's communication skills are over and above others. Having had previous real estate dealings only wish we could have found her earlier, she has made this transition easy and stress free. Many thanks.
Sold faster than I expectedRichard is a pleasant man to deal with.
Pleasant, knowledgeable and easy to work with.From the very outset when we met Damian he had a solid knowledge of the East Ballarat area we were selling in which impressed myself and my brothers. With Penny Shields working in conjunction with Damian they achieved what we consider to be very good price for the property.
Highly Recommend Damian!We dealt with Damian for a number of months while searching for a home in a very competitive Ballarat market. Damian is friendly, professional and so very personable, making working with him such a pleasure. Damian kept in contact with us, even outside of hours, and made the whole process smooth and transparent. We also appreciated Damian's personalised heads up about up & coming properties in the area. We spent a great deal of time looking for the perfect home, and Damian was by far the most attentive and helpful agent we dealt with. We would use Damian ourselves to sell our own properties in future. Thanks so much Damian!

Chris made our dreams a reality when he presented us with a house and property we fell in love with.

Our experience was of complete professionalism and would thoroughly recommend him and the PRD team to anyone considering buying or selling.

Tash Martin has gone over and above the fussiest expectations from a real estate agentDid not know Tash or any of her family and friends before contacting PRD. She spent hours cleaning up the house my sister was living in before the photo shoot. She did this on her own accord, was friendly, professional and thorough! And has been genuinely friendly and helpful every step of the way! 5 stars all the way!
Great experienceA very professional and friendly experience with Tash.
Tash is the best!I have connected with Tash over several months of house selling and hunting for a new home. Always she is warm and courteous and accommodating of her clients needs and wishes. With a keen awareness of the market movements and availability, I felt totally comfortable with her advice. Her professional boundaries are clear and ethical. I simply could not fault her or the competent way she fulfilled her role and would unreservedly recommend her.
Very proffesional and curtiousTash is one of the most genuine people you could ever meet, her approach to country lifestyle properties, is undoutably due to the love of her life in a country town. What better to sell you a property than some some who knows the district and most of its people, she's quite a character , like a family member.

Many times that l conversed with her she was friendly, caring, engaging, patience and most importantly she displayed such a delightful attitude making her stand out amongst the crowd of Real Estate Agents.

Thanks &kind regards Tony & Jacques
Jake was extremely professional with every twist and turn.Jake was extremely professional with every twist and turn.
Not just your regular real estate agentHaving browsed through multiple properties in an unfamiliar market, Damian was a breath of fresh air. He assisted us thoroughly through the buying process and got us in touch with a host of other services. Not only he got his vendors the best possible price, Damian offered an amazing after sales service getting us quotes for some minor work around the property. Most agents will forget you once a sale has gone through. Damians surely not one of them. I predict a bright future for him in his chosen profession. He will surely be our first choice if we were ever to sell.
Experience with Catharina greatI was very happy.
Very HappyI would recommend Jake for sure, easy to deal with, fantastic knowledge of the local area. Always followed up and returned calls.
After purchasing our property 16 years ago from Chris it was only natural that we use Chris to sellChris is very professional as an agent. He is a very friendly and caring person who will speak about your needs and find the best way to go about giving you the best result you are looking for. His knowledge of rural areas is amazing. Always communicating with us every couple of days. We would highly recommend Chris.

Friendly and approachableFrom our first meeting with Catharina we both commented on what a good feeling we got from her. We were ultimately able to purchase a property through Catharina - the deal had a couple of hiccups that she worked tirelessly to resolve. We have no hesitation in recommending Catharina to others and in fact, it is our intention to list a property with her later this year. Her hard working but friendly attitude has turned us from purchasers to vendors.

Chris Leonard a trusted realtorChris Leonard (PRD Ballarat) made both purchasing a new place and selling my first house a much less stressful ordeal. Chris has great communication skills and makes you feel at ease with the whole process. Chris will not over price your place just to get the sale, he is a genuinely good guy with your best interest at heart, so will tell you a realistic range. Chris went above and beyond with his support. You want someone you trust to sell your place and that is Chris.

Very professional & approachableWe could not have hoped for a better agent. Catharina is so friendly and approachable and has a great knowledge of the Ballarat market. Her communication throughout the sale of our property was excellent and we really appreciated her honesty when seeking advice and feedback in relation to the sale. She was highly professional in every aspect, which was reflected in a quick sale and a price well exceeded our expectations. We are a step closer to retirement and can’t thank her enough!
Chris Leonard the Human Being.Our first experience with Chris was 17 years ago when we purchased our property at 137 Griffins Road Coghills Creek. Now we have come full circle with Chris negotiating the sale of the property. All through the process which for reasons had twists & turns, Chris remained upbeat & showed his professionalism in all facets of his marketing, personal involvement & drive to give us the best outcome. nothing was too much trouble & we all could have a goood conversation & a laugh over a cup of tea & scones. It has been a pleasure dealing with him.

Couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant experience buying my first home and dealing with Damian.Made the whole purchasing experience a breeze. From the initial walk through and making time to meet me at the property, to answering and returning phone calls asap. He always kept me up to date with what was happening and I can’t fault him at all. Such an easy bloke to get along with as well.
Not just an amazing agent, he’s an extraordinary individualDamian is incredibly unique and has exceptional EI with a humbleness that sets him apart from any real estate agent you’ve ever met. It sounds cliche but he truly is the right man for the job. Real estate knowledge is not just his forte, his a true person.
Amazing ExperiencePenny has been incredible, From the moment we met her we got such a warm genuine vibe off her and it was more like meeting a long lost friend as opposed to doing business She gave us a detailed background of the property and was very forthcoming with the process from bid/offer and now as we settle We HIGHLY recommend her and all PRD agents, We would DEFINITELY use this agency again.
Excellent service from Chris Leonard at PRDChris Leonard and Rob McClure worked as a team in supporting me with the sale of our family home. I had been living here for 31 years and needed to sell our home on 5 acres after losing my husband last year, & finding the work load for 1 person overwhelming. Both Chris and Rob showed expertise in the market, a high level of professionalism, and evidence competence, honesty and integrity. I felt confidence in both Chris & Rob, and believe they balanced the needs and provided support to both me as vendor and also the purchaser. They worked as a team and supported each other, which was commendable given only one of them would eventually sell the property. But much more than that they provided the patience and support I needed in this challenging time & were able to be flexible to meet my needs. I would not hesitate in recommending either of them, or engaging PRD as a team to sell or purchase your property.
I found Penny to very professional in her workPenny displayed utmost professionalism in selling my home and to purchase another.
Damian was fantasticDamian was very professional and extremely helpful. He patients with any questions i had regarding the no matter how small the question. he was an absolute delight to deal with and would happily use you agency again cause of him.

Service Above & BeyondTim has been following us up for a few years now and to my mind is a credit to his profession. Always approachable and professional, I have valued his input and guidance . He has just sold our place which was only on the market for 6 days and returned a sale price above expectations. His assistance did not stop post sale and he has been a sounding board as we negotiate another purchase . Thank you and well done Tim.
Real Estate Sales ReviewTim has gone above and beyond to assist us with our sale from the beginning. Our sale went very smoothly and only took seven days for a great outcome. This can only be attributed to his expertise and knowledge of current trends and the real estate industry in Ballarat. Would highly recommend Tim and PRD Real Estate.
Catharina's Excellent customer serviceCatharina is a very professional and dedicated estate agent. We found her to have a warm friendly personality who listened to our desires and goals regarding the sale of our property. With her knowledge and expertise her advise gained us a better outcome than we had expected from other estate agents that we spoke to. Her communication was excellent and she kept us informed at all times throughout the process. We would recommend her without hesitation and certainly utilise her again.
Overall, we were very happy with the outcome and Catharina's communicationCatharina outlined the program clearly and then followed up at each stage. The process included the need to help tenants to move and Catharina organised PRD Ballarat staff to make it happen smoothly. Settlement on time completed a well-executed campaign. Well done.

Experience was Far Better Than ExpectedI entered into the sale process with trepidation, having had questionable experiences with Estate Agents in the past. Damian has single handedly turned my opinion of Estate Agents on its head. He was super easy to deal with, totally in touch with the local market, and most importantly he completely lived up to the trust we placed on him. Great Job Damian! Would highly recommend regardless of whether you are buying or selling.

Fantastic CommunicationWe spoke to Jake and advised we were looking at a property but had a few conditions to meet, He took us seriously despite this and he was completely transparent and communicated between ourselves and the vendor flawlessly. I couldn't recommend Jake more. He's been honest and trustworthy and that's hard to find in a salesman.
A excellent choice of agentAn enthusiastic agent, willing to listen and push for a better sale. Our only major problem occurred with covid. After allowing us time to ready our house for sale, we had 2 open houses with many potential buyers. The sale was quick and we received an excellent outcome.
Rural SaleChris at PRD has provided us an easy, stress free quick sale on our rural property. He was sympathetic and compassionate to our needs due to a sudden change in family circumstances and has gone beyond our expectations in achieving a great sale price.

He has kept us informed every step of the way and was very friendly and courteous, for this we highly recommend his services, skills and experience.
Consummate real estate professionalI found Catharina to be totally professional, always prompt, she has detailed up to date local market knowledge and guided me through the marketing and sale of my home. I would regard her as being my go-to real estate adviser now, and PRD as my go-to agency.

So glad we did, Catharina was extremely helpful in guiding us through the process, nothing was to much trouble. She was also great dealing with our tenant. We received multiple offers and sold above asking price within 6 days. We would not hesitate in recommending Catharina.
Thanks Tim!We purchased our first home through Tim. A terrifying and exciting process which saw us interacting with most of Ballarat's agents to find the right home. Tim was a breath of fresh air. He appeared knowledgeable and truly genuine throughout the process. Tim conducts himself with a high level of integrity and professionalism in an industry which has been a sellers market in recent times. We feel really grateful to have had such a great experience.

Throughout the whole process, Catharina has been so prompt in replying to my many many questions, some which I’m sure were very simple! As a first home buyer who didn’t know much about the buying process, Catharina explained and reassured me through everything. She is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and has many recommendations for trades and other suppliers you may need.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Catharina as an agent.

Easy experience. Excellent follow upWe were immediately reassured by Tim’s confidence and clarity in managing covid restrictions & people management for the house opening.

Property sale Sebastopol - BallaratPenny was referred to me to sell our lovely property in Sebastopol. During the whole process, from start to finish, Penny listened and guided us with her market insight and knowledge. Her market knowledge was completely up to date with recent sales and then analyzing and contrasting those sales to our property. The detail and analyzing on the go was very impressive. She communicated regularly, stepping us through the process and keeping us up to date with the sale process plus potential external impacts such as COVID lockdowns. Penny was transparent to both vendor and buyer, both parties knowing where they stood. I believe this provided a good outcome for both. In summing up my experience, you couldn't go wrong engaging Penny from PRD Ballarat with her utmost professionalism, friendly nature, market knowledge, investment in the property/vendor/seller and finally her communication. Penny made this an easy and enjoyable process. Thank you Penny. Regards Stuart

Wonderfully knowledgable, helpful and friendlyChris has been a fantastic agent throughout. We had come across Chris when we were keen on another property and although we were too late on that occasion we knew we could trust him from the word go so we were pleased that he was handling this sale. Trustworthy, great communicator and negotiated well when things got a bit tricky. We're grateful to him for his assistance through all of the trials and tribulations of house buying.

The Cat’s MeowCat has been a delight to deal with. She’s friendly, professional and has provided a level of detail and communication that we have not experienced before when buying a house. We could not recommend Cat and the team at PRD Ballarat more highly.
Highly recommendWe have now dealt with Penny twice over the last couple of years, first to purchase our investment property and second to sell it. On both occasions, Penny was nothing but professional, friendly, helpful, motivated to get us the best possible outcome. The communication was always regular so we always knew what stage things were at. I couldn't recommend Penny more highly and we will definitely get Penny's help again if we decide to purchase or sell a property again. Thanks Penny for everything...PRD Ballarat are lucky to have you!

Outstanding assistanceCatharina and her team provided outstanding assistance throughout the sale of our property. Catharina is an excellent communicator and I would highly recommend her to any friends and family looking to sell or purchase property.
We were very happy dealing with Richard and will engage him again, and recommend him to anyone.We engaged Richard to give an appraisal on our properties about 2 years ago and was impressed by his honesty, professionalism and knowledge of the Ballarat property market. So earlier this year when we decided to look at selling one, we contacted Richard to have a discussion on where we thought the property was at value wise, and both of our estimates were similar. On the back of this we decided to list the property with Richard. Richard did a wonderful job under extremely difficult circumstances because of covid restictions, liaising with our tenants to get it listed on line, at a higher price than we had originally agreed. The day after listing Richard had 3 very good offers all above the asking price, one of which we accepted. We are very happy with the result. Richard displayed a great deal patience and professionalism through this difficult period.
Fantastic and professional as always!!We have used Chris four times for property transactions (both buy and sell), and to be honest would not trust anyone else. From a buying and selling perspective, he is professional, supportive, trustworthy, honest and fully transparent. Chris follows up throughout the entire process and as a buyer and seller puts your mind at ease. What really impresses me with Chris is that when you are selling a property I feel he advocates for both parties involved. Thanks again Chris. It won’t be our last transaction I’m sure.
Jake has been greatJake was really easy to deal with, very responsive and accommodating to work with as a buyer.
Very professionalJake was very professional and friendly. During a time that can be stressful he was encouraging and positive. I had met Jake when looking at another property and was impressed with his knowledge of the property and liked his outgoing personality . I am glad I chose PRD and Jake and was very happy with the outcome.
Best real estate agent in BallaratPrd has sold 7 units and a house for us. Penny was very knowledgeable about our properties and the market. She answered any questions we had with respect. She would always call after every open for inspections. She was very confident on who was interested in the properties and who weren’t. If ypu want to sell in Ballarat call Penny, you won’t regret it.
Great serviceCatharina was very easy to deal with and she was realistic and honest in expectations of the sale, including price. Her communication was also good during the whole process.
Friendly positive attitude excellent knowledgeAs a family dealing with a very stressful time by sorting out an age cared facility for our Mum, Damien was wonderful, he had a very caring nature when dealing with Mum and ourselves. His knowledge of the area was outstanding, we were always kept informed. We would not hesitate to recommend Damien to anybody. Thank you Damien so much for all your help through this difficult time
First class service and resultFrom the beginning, Catarina demonstrated her knowledge and guided me with expertise to make what can be an overwhelming process so simplistic. She was accurate with her price guide and recommendations for minor repairs and touch ups to present the property in the best possible way. Living in Melbourne, it was important to find an agent I could trust to look after the property in my absence, she went to the property early in the morning before the open home to turn on the ducted heating for our buyers and I was confident that when she left the house was locked up and safe. After a successful first home open, Catarina spent all day Monday following up all groups which resulted in multiple offers with the property selling the next day! She kept us very well informed each step of the way and made the whole process seamless. She dedicated 100% of herself throughout the process and I couldn’t be happier with the result and the speed at which the sale and settlement occurred - yet confident she achieved a great result. I highly recommend Catarina for anyone looking to sell.
Consummate ProfessionalThe level of care, effort and honesty that Chris provided throughout the process of the sale was amazing. He displayed an incredible amount of knowledge, and his professionalism was excellent, he always went above and beyond where he was able to and for that I am eternally grateful. It felt more like I had a friend guiding me through the entirety of this process. Thank you so much Chris
Jake was greatJake was great, he left no stone unturned.
Professional FriendlyThe whole PRD team were excellent and made selling my home of 30+ years easy. Chris Leonard is professional, reliable and friendly always keeping me informed and Jake Clark was excellent as well. Selling my home was emotional at times but Chris is great at communicating and achieved a great result. Well done and our thanks to all.
Great experienceWe felt very comfortable with Chris. He was patient with our one and only lengthy inspection. He was so easy to get along with, informative about the market in the area and happy to answer all of our questions about the property. After the quick sale he followed up with phone calls to check that we were happy with the progress. Highly recommend Chris as a competent and knowledgeable agent.
Our dealings with Catharina have been exceptional.From our first meeting with Catharina it was obvious that her market knowledge was extensive and she imparted a sense of confidence in taking her options and advice on board. Her communication was excellent and it was obvious she had great rapport with us which would therefore extend to prospective buyers. She was very professional at all times with her organising open house days and advising on presentation and had great contacts on having the house ready for presentation. Her personal presentation is excellent. We had Catharina recommended to us and we have recommended her in return.
New House Smythes CreekInitially things were a bit pushy, but then I made my mind up that this was the house I wanted. Catherina was extremely professional and plenty of communication. Being a brand new house I was very fussy with final inspection and wanted to made sure I was 100% happy. Catherina provided the concerns I had to the builder to ensure I was happy. Overall top quality service. I can see why so many people are happy with Catherina and her service. Thanks again

Success with Damian ShackellBeing the first property we have ever sold we were unsure of all the process steps. Damian had great knowledge and really supported us through the whole process from start to finish.

As the property we were selling was leased Damian help manage the expectations and emotions of the tenants also. All in all a great experience, thanks Damian.

Review For 18 Sayle StreetRecently we made the decision to sell our wonderful house in Sebastopol through PRD realestate. We new that it was vital, right from the start to choose the correct agent to handle the sale of our property, and I’m happy to say that Don Hanlon and the team at PRD came through with flying colours. Right from our very first meeting with both Don and Kiara we felt a high level of confidence that we were dealing with professionals who were keen to realise results and were mindful of the responsibility of handling our most precious asset. Don explained the process involved in the selling of our house and was very receptive to our numerous question. We were blown away on our first open house which resulted in around 18 groups of prospective buyers going through our property. This entire process was completely managed in an orderly fashion, with an emphasis that was both mindful of our personal property and respectful of our house. I’m delighted to confirm that from this very first inspection we were able to sell our property for a price that met our expectations. I must also add that we were really impressed by the online marketing page for our house which displayed a number of images that presented our residence in a more personalised and stylish way, rather than the standard generic type of photographs associated with the industry. We both started this journey with our fare share of apprehension and emotional attachment regarding our home, but I can say without a doubt now, that we made the right choice when we engaged PRD to handle the sale of our property.
Friendly and Efficient ServiceIt was a pleasure to use Don at PRD to sell our property. Don and his team are always friendly and available at all times when needed. I would highly recommend them.
Excellent Personal & Professional CareDon worked diligently to find the right buyer for the required asking price. Don treated me and the property with the greatest respect. Don is honest and trustworthy, a man of his word. I would recommend him highly as a man of good character and honour.
Great Agent With Extensive Knowledge Of The MarketIt was such a pleasure to deal with Don. His knowledge of the Ballarat market was extensive and the advice he gave us in preparing the property for sale was spot on. He kept us informed at all times via text, phone calls and email during the sale process. The outcome exceeded our expectations, however Don was always confident that we would achieve this sale price. I would highly recommend Don Hanlon to anyone thinking of engaging a real estate agent.
Knowledgeable and ExperiencedFrom our first meeting with Don, we felt extremely comfortable in his knowledge and expertise of the market and the strategies needed to deliver a great result for us. Don had a realistic approach which was appreciated with a young family, managing a build and a small business. We were kept informed each step of the way with constant feedback. Experience really matters in selling homes and Don and his team certainly used that to provide us with a terrific service and final result. We would happily recommend PRD to family and friends.
Accurate Assessment Followed By Quick SaleChris has a pleasant and professional manner. His assessment of our property and it's value proved to be accurate. He was open to and acted on our feedback regarding marketing the property. Chris communicated regularly and honestly. He worked diligently to get the best outcome for us, as vendors, while showing due respect to any potential buyer/s. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to others.
Very Professional and HelpfulWe found the information provided by Don and his recommendations for pricing and marketing were pretty spot on and we are happy with the outcome.
Great Personal ServiceChris has been more than an agent for us. Yes, he knows our local market and yes, he has great professional knowledge and yes, he has been dogged in the pursuit of a satisfactory outcome in relation to the sale of our home. But more particular he became a friend and shower that he cared about us, not only the sale.

Honest, Skilled & Reliable! No Nonsense!I have been fortunate enough to work with Don twice, both as a buyer and a seller. The best thing about working with Don is the peace of mind. Buying and selling come with their own stresses and Don is an expert at providing you with the confidence you need, to know that everything is on track. If I have the opportunity to buy or sell again in Ballarat, I would not hesitate to give him a buzz. Highly recommend!
Friendly and EasyChris was easy to communicate with and efficient to work with. He gave us suitable space as we made our decision to purchase and has been helpful and friendly with all negotiations. Would definitely recommend.
Corey HuckerI cannot recommend Corey highly enough. He was great to deal with and went above and beyond to sell our house.
Catharina, from the very first time we met her impressed us with her professional and honest way she presented all the properties she showed us and in all the dealings we have had with her. We would have no hesitation in recommending Catharina if you are looking for a property to buy or sell.
Terrific ExperienceTash has a bubbly, happy attitude topped off with a knowledgeable wealth and experience in the property market. Tash actually cares about her clients, seller or buyer, and we will surely return to her office in the future.
Excellent Service EthicFantastic experience so far while purchasing a property through Tash. She has been so helpful to us as purchasers and we would definitely use her when selling the property in the future.
Extremely Knowledgeable & TrustworthyThroughout my experience Richard has not only been extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy, but also made himself readily available to answer queries, has worked hard to achieve the best possible outcome for me. Richard has also been not only exceedingly kind, but also has the patience to answer questions or revisit things I may not have clearly understood. He has tried, to the best of his ability to alleviate any stresses or concerns I may have had. I have informed Richard that I will be dealing with him in the future and based upon my experience would not hesitate to recommend Richard to anyone buying or selling. I would also say please consider Richard for your own property endeavours, as I sincerely trusted him and he exceeded my expectations! Personally, I believe him to have the utmost integrity and believe he had had my interests in mind, to achieve the absolute best possible outcome, at all time. A HUGE THANKYOU!!!
Wonderful AgentChris was very informative, up with the latest market trends and helpful in every way.
Excellent, Professional & FriendlyChris was excellent to deal with and made things simple and as easy for us as possible. Very friendly and had good insight into the local market. Being easy to contact and having a short response time if I had any questions made the process as stress free as possible.
Excellent JobThroughout the sales process, Richard was very professional and also a good negotiator. I gave Richard what my bottom price was and established an advertised price and I was happy with the price I got for the property. I will certainly recommend Richard to other sellers.
Many thanks to Rob & Catharina and the PRD Team. They made buying our new home & auctioning our old house stress free. We always had great communication from them & Stephanie and were always kept in the loop on what was happening with both houses. Very professional from start to finish, we highly recommend PRD Ballarat.
Ellie & I were really happy dealing with PRD. I found Catharina very friendly & approachable and helped us out with any problems we had. Rob also did a good job showing us around the property & setting up the paper work etc. Thanks also to Stephanie for the help she gave us. I would be happy to deal with PRD again if we decide to buy another house down the track.
Amazing Professional Service!Chris and the PRD Team made the sale of our lifestyle property in snake valley so easy and stress free. The professional and caring approach throughput the entire process from the first appraisals to signed contracts was just amazing. Cant recommend Chris and he PRD team highly enough!
Fantastic To Deal WithChris made selling our property effortless. He listened to what we wanted and was able to provide us with a quick sale for the price we were looking for. I would recommend using Chris if buying or selling a property as he makes the process easy.
Buying a house is a major decision – especially when the “deal” also involves selling a house – and I am selling the family home in Geelong to move to Ballarat. Buying, selling, packing, moving. Where to start! Buying 111 Dyson Drive, Alfredton was distressingly easy; love at first sight. I visited a number of other places – but always came back to 111. Rob was very patient and helpful. Rob was clear in explaining what I could expect. Now I am packing up, sorting out, discarding 70 years of memories (and assorted clutter). I am looking forward to the next encounter with your agency in the lead up to my move. I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending Rob, and the other I have had dealings with during this purchase.
Chris Is The Best!Chris Leonard is the best! We cant not fault out experience we have had with Chris. he always presents himself very well, is courteous, very helpful & informative, not pushy & comfortable to be around. We would always highly recommend Chris to anyone looking at buying or selling.
Dream Home, Dream AgentChris we met you in person on the doorstep of our dream home. Your video presentation online we unique and had us captured. (Wish I had saved it) Your professional, informed and friendly manner topped off our purchase. We will and have certainly expressed our satisfaction and highly recommended you and PRD.
The process was prompt & efficient. The service was wonderful & great communication during the negotiation stage. We are satisfied clients.
Experienced Agent With Great Locas KnowledgeChris has been a delight to deal with.
Chris Gets The ResultsThis is the second time we have engaged Chris to sell our property and once again he achieved the results we realistically hoped for. If we are in the position to sell again, Chris at PRD will definitely be one we call on! Thanks so much Chris.
Nice Guy Wjo Worked Hard For The PurchaserChris was fantastic to deal with. He was thorough in his knowledge about the area & respond promptly to calls & messages even though it was after hours as we live in Western Australia. He worked hard to allow us to purchase our dream home & thank him for that, A very lovely guy.
Chris Helped In The Selling Of My Mothers House.Professional and very obliging. Contact between Chris and myself was excellent.

Chris was very accessible, responsive and knowledgeable through the whole process. Thankyou Chris for exceeding our expectations. We would deantly recommend Chris and PRD Nationwide to our family and friends .
Buying real estate and parting with your hard earned savings can be a trying experience. Dealing with hard sell real estate agents/salespersons doesn't help this process. With Tash Martin there was none of this... straightforward, honest, no BS, only useful local knowledge that helped our decision to proceed with the purchase. A big thankyou to Tash!
The best agent in BallaratWe choose Chris because he was honest and down to earth. We felt very comfortable with him, his knowledge of the local area was second to none and his professionalism was spot on. Because of his excellent negotiation skills we got top price for our property.
Excellent team workBoth Anne and I would like to thank Chris Leonard and his team at PRD Ballarat for the professional manner in which the sale of our property was conducted. The communications throughout were outstanding and the end result was very pleasing. Selling your home can be a very distressing process but we could not have asked for a smoother transaction thanks mainly to Chris's excellent communications throughout the sale period. We would have no hesitation in referring our friends to sell through Chris and his team. Thank you Chris and team. Cheers Ken and Anne
We would like to thank Rob and his team. The professional manner they used in the sale of our house, from the start to finish was wonderful! The communication throughout was much appreciated. Thank you everyone!

Great Agent!Chris was very friendly, flexible and helpful. Chris always responded promptly and made the negotiation process smooth and fair. It was a pleasure working with Chris and we are thrilled with out purchase. Thanks Chris!
Professional & Passionate AgentDon Hanlon has sold two properties for me now and on both occasions his warm approachable and understanding manner was such a support to me during a challenging time. He kept in regular contact even sometimes just to say hello and see how you are doing at your end of things. He has such a great sense of humor which i very much appreciated and his ability to stay focused on our shared plan was out standing.
Excellent AgentProfessional, Sincere and Caring.
Thank You For Your Commitment!Don impressed us from the first time we met him when looking to purchase a home. So much so that we felt he was the perfect fit to sell out home. Don's tenacity, reliability, professionalism, commitment to us and his constant feedback on the progress of the sale gave us a great sense of ease and comfort. We thank him for his service to us and would highly recommend him. Thank you Don!
Approximately 19 years ago my wife and I obtained the services of Jens Gaunt (now PRD) to sell our first unit and buy another unit through them at the same time. Last year we decided to sell our second unit and again decided to use the services of PRD. We found their professionalism to be first class when we sold our first unit so we decided to contact Rob McClure again to arrange the sale of our second unit. Like the first time, we found their service to be excellent. They kept us notified regularly as to how things were progressing until the unit was sold and even afterwards. My wife and I would recommend PRD and Rob McClure to anyone looking to sell or buy property.
A Great CollaborationDon Hanlon played a vital role in our recent property sale. The situation was unique in selling a complicated site to wind up a deceased estate. Don not only stuck with us as the journey progressed over a longer period than expected, he also helped us make decisions on the property that had deeper implications, saving us time and cost. Ultimately, Don brought the right buyers to the deal for a very satisfactory outcome. Full marks to Don and his team for tenacity, reliability and integrity.

Dear Don, Casey and the team at PRD, We wish to thank you for the very professional way in which you arranged the sale of our house in Errard Street South. It was very satisfying that you managed a sale before auction at an appropriate price. We have no hesitation in recommending PRD real estate to another vendor or purchaser.
The Agent For The Job!Chris was upfront, honest and very reliable. Our home sold very quickly and Chris negotiated price and buying terms to our requests. Would not hesitate to recommend or use Chris again.
I am delighted to report Don Hanlon managed to quickly sell my property for the asking price. I have been particularly impressed by his enthusiasm and commitment to achieve a stunning result and I would highly recommend him to anyone listing a property for sale. Further he was assisted by Casey Horgan as coordinator who ensured all the necessary documentation was in place to facilitate the sale. I have no hesitation in recommending Don and the PRD team.
Fantastic AgentSelling a house isn't always easy but selling whilst living in another state is even harder, thankfully Chris Leonard made it hassle free. His professionalism, excellent communication, area knowledge and market strategy helped us achieve the best possible price. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris if you are selling a property, he and his team will provide you with the best service and a pleasurable selling experience.
A Job Well DoneDon looked after us very well.
Easy To Work With AgentDon was very easy to work with, kept us informed and listened to us. Well done Don.
Very ReliableI found Don very reliable in my dealings with him. He was in constant contact throughout the auction process and his market analysis was spot on. I would highly recommend his services.
Managed The Sales Process WellThanks Don for being very professional through the sales process, much appreciated.
I was impressed with Don's level of follow up and his communication. He was able to fit me in for a viewing at short notice, on what was an already busy day for him. Not being from the area itself, Don was able to give me a little local insight as well. I would recommend people to use your firm in the future and Don Hanlon in particular. P.S. I was also quite impressed with the above and beyond efforts of both Kiara & Casey.
We have received service beyond belief from Robert McClure. He has stuck by us and trusted us. We had a terrible experience selling our property through another agent with terrible conditions, Rob believed us beyond doubt and was very patient and understanding with our problem. He has also be very good in finding out information about the new property and kept us informed all the way.
Very ProfessionalChris and the others involved were highly professional, communicated honestly and made the whole process feel easy and stress free!
Thank you so much again Tallulah. You have really been of immense help to us. I haven't seen so much support, understanding, professionalism and kindness with other real estate agents. I'l have a chat with Jenny tonight and put our applications for some of the properties and we are also exploring options to may be just buy one as we will be definitely staying in Ballarat for another 3/4 years. Thanks again Tallulah and have a great day.
Fantastic Job From Start To FinishDon really took charge of the sale and guided the family through the whole process. Don and the team did what they said they would do and it resulted in a sale within days of being marketed.
Our recent purchase of an investment property through PRD Ballarat was extremely easy, straight forward and stress free. Agent Robert McClure was always very helpful and available to answer our questions and arrange inspections. He was prompt to answer our calls and return calls and emails. The entire process was easy from the first inspection to the signing of contracts through to final inspection. We would not hesitate to engage PRD Ballarat for our future property purchases.
Highly RecommendWe couldn't speak more highly of the service we received from Don, Dean and the team at PRD. Our house sold in 6 days but most of all the communication through the whole process was fantastic. They really made the process easy.
My wife and I are the owners of 3/160 Fussell Street Ballarat East. Jenna is our rental manager. I wanted to pass on our feedback about Jenna's excellent management of our property. She has been indefatigable in chasing our delinquent former tenant for unpaid rent and securing a new tenant. Her advocacy of our interests has been absolutely first class.
Chris Is Your Man!My wife and I first met Chris at an open home in our local area some time before we were even thinking of selling. When the time finally came to put the house on the market we knew that Chris was our man. From the beginning Chris made us feel completely at ease, there was no pressure and nothing was too much trouble. He was respectful of our wishes and kept us up to date through out whole the process. We were so impressed with the advertising campaign, from the wonderful words Chris wrote about our home to the video he put together along with the professional photographers. At every step we new that Chris was on our side. He would even pop the kettle on and make us a coffee!! As busy working parents it was so refreshing to deal with such a genuine and kind bloke. If your selling a rural property, Chris is your man!!
Legend AgentAnyone wanting to buy a property I would recommend trying to find your dream home through PRD Ballarat. Chris was a fantastic agent who helped us out in buying our very first home. Matt is also a fantastic agent who helped along the way. We have had a few let downs from other agents recently and to then find something with PRD really showed us just how a great real estate should be. Professional but still down to earth like you have known him your whole life. So thanks again Chris for all your help and support we both appreciate everything you did for us.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Don Hanlon for his awesome work in selling our Dad's property at 508 Gillies Street, Wendouree. It was only on the market for 3 weeks and was sold for above the expected price. Don's communication was impeccable, keeping my sister and I in the loop for the whole process. Obviously his experience in the industry shone through, negotiating with the buyers to maximise a final price. Our dad has recently gone into aged care and we needed to fund this through the sale of the house. It made this transitional time for our family easier and more relaxed. We cannot thank him enough.
I am writing to show my appreciation of Michael Darken at PRDnationwide. I had a rental property at 25 Willoby Street, Beaufort which has recently sold. Michael has gone above and beyond to help me with my rental property and even after it has sold. Michael has always been easy to contact and is a very approachable person. After being with PRD for a few years now, I can say that he has stood out as being the best rental agent I have had. I could not be more pleased with how I have been treated and everything he has done to help with my property. Michael has made my life a lot easier, dealing with my property for me. I cannot write enough to say how happy I have been with his service. Thank you, Michael, you really have been fantastic.
Great AgentIn respect of the sale of our property we could not fault Chris and the office staff. Would definitely recommend PRD to anyone buying or selling.
Helpful, Informative & Good CommunicatorChris is good at his job. He kept us informed of the market and of progress of our sale. He offered good advice and saved us money by doing so. We would recommend Chris to anyone and have already done so!
Helpful, Friendly & KnowledgeableWe found Catharina excellent in providing on-going advice and guiding us through the purchasing process. Catharina's outgoing and friendly nature is reflected through the professional service she provides with a clear understanding of the situation/position. Overall, we thank Catharina and recommend her as an agent.
Perfect Agent!Catharina makes selling a house so easy! Her friendly, happy personality makes a her pleasure to work with. Her communication was excellent & she goes beyond her requirements to make sure everything is perfect. I cannot recommend Catharina enough she was perfect.
I would like to say thank you to Don and the team at PRD Nationwide for working tirelessly and effortlessly to ensure that we got the results we desired therefore I thank you a lot. God bless everyone at PRDnationwide and I will put everything in God’s hand. Amen in Jesus’ name. Amen
Very Happy Vendors!We chose PRD because they had sold so many properties in our area. We know why - Chris is fantastic! His knowledge of our area, professionalism and most importantly, accurate price quoting is why we sold in two weeks! We were rapt with the marketing campaign, using a combination of drone and professional photography fully captured the character of our property and brought many more prospective buyers through than we could have hoped for. Chris was accessible and approachable throughout and did a brilliant job negotiating on our behalf. We couldn't be happier with the result and completely attribute that to Chris and the team at PRD. Highly recommended!
PRD Chris LeonardFrom the moment we contacted Chris at PRD to value our home, list and settlement, the journey has been so easy. Chris is a great communicator and listened to any concerns we had, worked with us, not pushy in anyway. The drone photography was spectacular and the team in the office kept us informed of all offers, enquiries and viewing times. Highly recommend Chris and the team at PRD.
What You Hope A Real Estate Agent Will BeChris was so helpful and informative when we bought our house and best of all - a great and reliable communicator. Everyone else we dealt with could take a leaf out of his book. We recommend any dealings with Chris and not forgetting Kristy, at PRD Ballarat.
Great Agent!Always gets back to you in a timeley manner. Easy to communicate with. Will try and get you the best outcome!
Perfect Score Of 10!Don is brilliant! Top notch! 10/10 ....And he knows his stuff
Congratulations to Catharina Hartzheim, Residential Sales Consultant. Catharina has been excellent to deal with, always follows up with answers to our questions, phone calls, nothing was ever a bother, friendly, courteous, a delight. Thank you!
Outstanding Support!We have been using Chris Leonard for over 10 years to sell our properties. Chris Leonard is a testament to PRDnationwide. Chris recently sold another property for us in Gordon. Due to circumstances out of our hands, the settlement process was held up on our side. During this time Chris remained professional, calm, supportive, understanding and incredibly helpful. Chris is driven, dedicated and focused on providing the best result for the seller. We are extremely happy with the selling price achieved and his constant communication throughout the process. Thanks Chris!
We would like to commend Robert McClure for the professionalism in the sale of our home which was completed within our time frame and achieved an excellent results. The 'Open House' worked well and the follow up communication was always very prompt and informative. You were aggressive in your marketing on our behalf, wasted no time with the photography, advertising and bringing prospective buyers through the home on a regular basis and we felt your entire agency represented our house very well. We were happy with the valuation and the quick sale of the house due to Robert's good work. We give special thanks to Catharina Hartzheim for her time and effort throughout the whole sale process. We are happy to recommend Robert to anyone considering selling their home.
Don has been most helpful during the process of purchasing the premises. I am especially grateful to him for his support while I was sorting out NBN problems, including registration of the new address with Google Maps and the Ballarat City Council. I am most grateful.
We were very pleased that we chose PRD Ballarat to assist us with the sale of our house. We were extremely happy with the result. The staff at PRD were very professional from start to finish. This is the third house that Rob McClure has sold for us and we would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling in Ballarat. Rob listened to us, advised us, assisted us with ideas in how to present our house and kept us updated along the way. The advertising campaign was especially significant in the successful selling of our house, the film that Rob starred in really showed off our house highlighting the good points. PRD Ballarat were exceptional in every way!
I recently purchased a property through PRD and was so pleased with their professional service I decided to sell my existing property with them. The service was outstanding and whenever we had any questions, they were available to answer them in a timely manner. Special thanks to Catharina for her constant assistance throughout the 'buying' and 'selling' experience.
Colin & I would like to thank you for everything you have done with the recent sale of our Linden Ave property. Your communication along with your team has been fantastic and we are very grateful. Please also pass our thanks onto your team for their assistance & communication along the way. We wish you all the very best!
Brilliant Agent!Chris recently sold our property at 18 Log Cabin Lane, Carngham. Chris did a fantastic job and the property was sold quickly and for a price we were very happy with. We found Chris to have a great deal of valuable knowledge about real estate and our local area. He was friendly, approachable and was always available to show potential buyers through our property, resulting in a large number of buyers coming out and seeing our property. We would highly recommend Chris and we will certainly be using his services next time we sell a property.
Very ProfessionalHas a very good knowledge of these types of properties.
Great AgentChris assisted with the end of the negotiations of our purchase, Chris was very understanding and pleasurable to deal with. Chris made the negotiation process easy and fun, although we were on the other side of the state due to a family emergency, Chris went to great lengths to ensure we had a fair opportunity to negotiate for the purchase of our new family property. Thanks mate, also a great bloke.
Mr Chris LeonardI found Chris Leonard to be very friendly & helpful and went out of his way to keep in touch with all the procedures of the sale of the property. I would recommend his services to any one. Thanks Chris.
Enthusiastic & TransparentChris had a positive approach to the sale of my property. I was regularly kept up to date and I was also assisted with maintenance issues. I felt secure with this agent and would thoroughly recommend him.
Highly Recommend ChrisChris sold us our home 17 years ago and has kept in touch with us over the years. When it came time to put our house on the market it was an easy decision to choose Chris. He has kept us up to date through the sale process and has gone out of his way to assist us with any queries or concerns we may had during the process. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone thinking of putting their property on the market.
Fantastic ServiceReally happy with how Chris managed the whole process! We are glad we brought through PRD and if we were to sell or buy again we would be happy to engage the team to assist us!
I would like to provide some feedback on the performance and conduct of one of your Residential Consultants, Don Hanlon. We have just purchased a property in Sebastopol and under some unique circumstances, which we created. However, Don has been the absolute professional throughout the sale over the past six days. (This is the time we took for the entire sale process.) His diligence in providing information and further answers to our questions and his prompt response time never kept us waiting or wondering. The fact that we have never met face to face did not influence his conduct or performance. It was his professionalism and determination to understand our situation that facilitated the process both efficiently and effectively. Unlike other agents we have tried to work with in Ballarat, Don was straight forward, accurate with his advice and information and he remained customer focussed – for both vendor and purchaser – and ensured we were enabled throughout the entire process. Don’s willingness to effect the sale called for some extra work, including dealing with some less desirables in the legal fraternity, but he maintained his professionalism and gained the outcomes we required. We are most appreciative of his efforts and unwavering support throughout our purchase. Congratulations on having such a remarkable person on your team.
Very Professional & KnowledgableDon is a great agent who got a great result in a short amount of time. Casey was also a great help and very professional and easy to deal with. Would highly recommend PRD!
No Nonsense AgentVery straight forward and great communication, thanks Don.
Don Hanlon - Fantastic AgentThis is now the fifth time I have worked with Don Hanlon and the team at PRD to sell property. I have always found Don to be very easy to get along with and quite honest with myself when managing my sales expectations.
Excellent ExcellentThat about sums it up!
Professional ExperienceWe sold our house through Don and had excellent communication throughout the process. The sale was fast and efficient leading to an outcome of both happy buyer and seller. We would recommend Don when selling your next property!
Fantastic AgentMy sister and I sold our Dad's house with Don and are absolutely thrilled with the service and expertise he provided. Before, during and after the sale Don was always in contact, keeping us updated constantly. The house was sold after being on the market for only 3 1/2 weeks and we achieved a sale price over the top of our expected range. We would highly recommend Don as his knowledge of the market is outstanding. Thanks Don!
Best Agent I Have Ever UsedDon was fully aware of what we wanted to achieve in regards to sale price, and for the first time ever, having sold 7 other properties, I was not pressured as a vendor to adjust my price expectation.
Fantastic AgentDon Hanlon is a great Real Estate agent with knowledge of what he has selling. He is not afraid to go the extra step for his client’s to gain every dollar he can - I would recommend him and PRD Ballarat to anyone selling there property.
Great ServiceChris was awesome, he called and asked about what made us tick which ended up being important when negotiating the sale. We were not able to view the land and he sent me a video of the property without being asked to do so, he then sent our keys with no hassle. Amazing service.
Fantastic AgentWe found Chris Leonard and the staff at PRD very polite and they handled the sale of our property professionally. Chris obtained a better sale result then what we expected. Will definitely go through PRD for any future sales or purchases. At PRD they care about there client and strive to please.
Above & BeyondCatharina went above and beyond to sell our first home. She kept us well informed during the entire processed and had a very open and honest approached to selling our property. When it came to negotiation Catharina far exceeded our expectations. The entire process was make so much easier with her as our agent. Thank you Catharina!
Excellent!Catharina is experienced and professional and worked hard to sell my property. She is a great negotiator. I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Highly RecommendedCatharina was true to her word from the very start. A most pleasant not pushy agent who just does what she says with no fuss. Fantastic at keeping us in the loop, no pressure when the offers started to come, overall an absolutely delightful girl whom I would thoroughly recommend! Thank you for a great outcome Catharin!
To Rob and all other PRD staff involved in the sale of 621 Wilson Street. Many thanks to each one of you. The whole sale process was a most professional experience. Thanks so much Rob for working diligently to achieve a sale price beyond expectation.
I am happy to recommend PRDnationwide, the service I received from the staff was excellent. Robert McClure is a very experienced and knowledgeable agent, he discussed every stage of the sales campaign with me and set realistic and achievable targets. He is friendly and welcoming to clients and prospective buyers. Catharina and Hannah are also very professional and helpful and I am very satisfied with their service and the result achieved.
Catharina Appeared A Very Respectful AgentAs a respected agent I will have no hesitation in contacting her again.
Great AgentCatharina communicated openly with us throughout the buying process. She seemed entirely credible, had excellent market knowledge and realistic expectations. We would definitely recommend buying or selling your property with Catharina.
Perfect Agent!Catharina was a wonderful agent, very caring and great knowledge of the market. Our house sold in 6 days and we were extremely pleased with the result!

We will be recommending Chris and look forward to any future real estate dealings with him. Thank you Chris for helping us to one of our goals.
Great AgentWe purchased our first property through Catharina. Catharina was fantastic. She made the process so easy and guided us through all the steps with ease. We rang her at odd hours and she always took our call and had the right answer. She was very knowledgeable regarding the market. She has a very professional work ethic and she will be our first point of contact when we look at our next property. Dan
Successful SaleWe were very happy with the service offered by Don and his team. He accurately predicted the price range and communicated the campaign strategy effectively.The whole process was seemless and I would have no hesitation in recomending Don's services to any potential vendor
Diligent and trustworthyHave bought and sold through Chris a couple of times now. We have complete trust in his knowledge and honesty. Even when he has been on holiday he has made himself available to discuss business. We would always recommend him to others wishing to sell or buy.
Caring and Positive AgentChris Leonard sat and discussed our potential end-year sale of our home and 40 acre property back in April and waited patiently till we were ready to proceed. At all times he has been patient, positive and caring at what was an emotional time for us. He promised a figure well over an initial 'private' off-market, offer and achieved even higher than that figure; "though I will respect your wishes if you wish to proceed with this offer now". He negotiated with several prospective purchasers while we were interstate and I feel that both parties were happy with the final outcome. We are happy to recommend Chris to others to work on their behalf. Yours sincerely, Frances and Joseph Sensi
Chris really knows his country properties.Chris did alot of preparation for the auction of our property. He kept us fully informed over the whole campaign so that on auction day we knew exactly how the auction would unfold. Having this knowledge and an agent that knows his stuff gave us a great result on sale day. Very happy with Chris's efforts and he makes the whole process easy :)
Great OutcomeThanks Don for the great result in selling our property. Your professional and friendly approach was greatly appreciated. A job well done!
Good honest blokeChris is very prompt, easy to deal with and knows his area very well
Outstanding AgentThe handing of the sale of our house by the team at PRD Ballarat could only be described as outstanding! We were continually consulted, updated and informed throughout the process and were totally satisfied with the result. We were completely confident that Rob was fully in control and making decisions that were in our best interest. We were happy to follow his advice every step of the way. The sale was handled professionally from the start to finish and we would highly recommend Rob, Catharina and the PRD team.
Very ProfessionalThe first time I rag PRDNationwide i was greeted with a happy cheerful voice of Rob McClure. He has a very professional mannerism and has been very helpful coordinating between the builder and myself. He is prompt with emails and phone calls and has made he whole process a good experience.
Extremely helpful agentWe appreciate Chris’s efforts to sell our home, given we are off grid and dual occupancy with combustion stove, so we were definitely more likely to have a limited purchase market. Chris not only managed to sell our home but also achieved a result that we were happy with. Thank you to all at PRD who were involved in the sale of our property.
Good serviceI was impressed by the efficient and friendly service which Chris provided.
Fantastic for everyoneChris was the best agent I’ve had experience with. Very personable, experienced and easy going. Nothing was ever too much and I would recommend him for anyone wanting to sell. Very happy clients
Very easy to deal with!Chris was very attentive to our needs during the negotiation, easy to get a hold of, and provided us with great insight and information which helped us through the process. If we had any concerns during the process, Chris would make sure they were sorted very quickly. Would highly recommend.
Knowledgeable!Chris was extremely helpful and was readily available to help with answers to any questions we had about the property.
FANTASTIC AGENTThank you Chris for making the entire purchase a breeze! Would 110% recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy or sell a property!
Superb work Chris!From the outset, Chris openly explained the sales process, options and costs, worked very closely with us to ensure the property was presented visually and online as well as possible, quickly attracted buyer interest, kept us well informed, negotiated carefully the sale - well done Chris on delivering a very professional and friendly service, and a superb outcome!
Don Hanlon helped my husband and I with the sale of 2 properties to buy our dream little house. He gave us father figure advice and helped us over and beyond with phone calls and getting the price we needed. Thank you Don. The girls in the office were great, Casey and the rental staff in Lisa. Well-done!
Thank you Don for making the sale of our rental property stress free. Don was with us every step of the way keeping us well informed throughout the process. Selling within two weeks and for the asking price - impressive!
Thank you DonDear Don, I wanted to write to thank you and your team for the professionalism and dedication that you showed in the sale of our deceased mother's unrenovated property at 337 Lydiard St North, Soldiers Hill. Prior to engagement, you presented very useful advice and sensible estimates that did not seem to have been inflated simply in order to get our business. I felt very confident that this advice was sound and professional. Once engaged, you maintained excellent channels of communication with the four of us, despite none of us being local. At all times you provided us with a very good sense of the level of interest in the property. On auction day this enabled us to set the reserve price without any misgivings. It was clear that you ran a very successful marketing campaign, because on auction day, there was a very strong level of active interest and the reserve price ended up being exceeded by a very large and unexpected margin. It was a pleasure for all of us to have you and your team handle this sale in such a trouble free manner and with such an excellent outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of your firm to anyone wishing to sell real estate in Ballarat. Thank you again and yours sincerely, Robin Venables on behalf of Prue, Sue and Sally
Thorough & Straightforward. Great CommunicatorPleasure to recommend Don Hanlon. My dealings with Don were always straightforward and to the point. He was quickly able to determine my priorities meaning he didn't waste my time or his with incidentals. I was particularly impressed with how promptly he dealt with all matters. He is a very good communicator, thorough and straightforward. I was able to speak directly with him, knowing he would take my ideas and concerns on board. Highly recommended.
Great AgentDon really knows his stuff. He walked us through the current neighborhood comparable sales, thoughts on where our property fit and what's a best case scenario. Highly recommend his knowledge, professionalism and experience.
Couldn't Be BetterDon Hanlon guided us to a very successful sale, everything he advised turned out spot on, we couldn't be happier with Don's service and the auctioneer as well. Would be happy to recommend Don and PRD to anyone dealing in Real Estate in Ballarat.
Quick Sale - WendoureeWe asked PRD's Don Hanlon to give us an appraisal on a family property in Wendouree recently and he advised a price range we could expect and stated that we wouldn't have any trouble selling it. Don was spot on. With one newspaper advertisement-spread coupled with an I-net listing and one open day, the house was sold. From initial appraisal to final settlement, 5 weeks. We were pretty impressed with the professionalism of Don and his team at PRD, they kept us completely up to speed with the progress of the property sale and certainly delivered. Only too happy to recommend them. John Anderson (Ballarat)
Five Star AgentChris Leonard is an outstanding Real Estate Agent. We have sold and purchased four properties over the last year with Chris and he has delivered outstanding service and results on all occasions. He has always achieved and usually surpassed our expectations with regard to achieving sale prices, closing deals quickly and being so available and attentive despite his vast client base. We recommend him without hesitation.
Perfect ServicesQuick sale, great to deal with. Will be recommending.
Thanks ChrisThank you Chris, fantastic work mate and a pleasure to deal with, loved your energy and work ethic. Would not hesitate to enlist your help again
Profesionalism!Thanks Chris for your professionalism and easy going manner to assist in getting me the land to build my dream home. Forever grateful!
Don Has Been Very Easy To Work With & He Has Been Professional In His ApproachDespite not getting anywhere near the price I was keen for (or was quoted, or what I paid for initially) I have been very pleased with Don's professional approach to the sale and his dedication to the task. He has also been very good in enabling me to purchase in the new townhouse development.
Terrific Agent With A Personal TouchCan not fault Don's knowledge or help during the campaign. Very friendly and genuine.
Very ImpressedI was so pleased with Don as my agent. My house was advertised at $375,000 - $385,000. Within 2 or 3 days, I had an offer for $375,000 and I was going to accept it. Don advised me to wait until we had an open house...we had a open house a few days later and had an offer for $390,000 which I accepted. Without his advice I would have taken the lower offer. The whole process only took a couple of weeks. Don was an excellent communicator answering my requests quickly. I was very impressed and would certainly use him again.
Sale Of Family HomeDon was easy to deal with and made the sale for our family home a present experience. As we live in Melbourne Don handled the sale keeping us informed the whole way through the process. Always attentive and quick to inform us of any feedback. After every inspection or open day Don would advise us of the number of people that showed interest and where the home sat in the market. Once the home was sold Don assisted in discussions with both parties to ensure the transfer of property went through without any problems.
Excellent SalesmanshipDon works with and for the vendor. Great advice and assistance in the selling process, and works tirelessly to help achieve a quick sale.
Perseverence Pays OffDon was like a dog with a bone and his determination to sell our property and get us back to Tasmania was admirable. Apart from all that he is a nice guy. His assistant Kiara was also helpful, efficient and friendly. Can highly recommend him as an agent.
A Quick SaleWe explained to Don that we knew we had to make a compromise between waiting for the best possible price and selling the property quickly and we did need to sell it quickly. Don had a buyer within a week and the buyer wanted to settle faster than our bank could handle. We had the outcome we wanted.
Only The Best Will DoHonest, excellent follow up with myself as a vendor (and I had a lot of questions). Great after sales services, Don will not drop you like a hot cake once the deal is done. Highly recommended.
Excellent AgentDon Hanlon & PRD were fantastic to work with. Don's communication, professional approach and dedication to finding the right buyer and the best price for our home was outstanding.
Leo Davey 308 Errard StreetVery happy with Don's handling of sale, crossed every T & dotted every I. First class effort.
This Guy Knows His Stuff!From appraisal to settlement Don was all over it and we felt as though we were in safe hands from the get go! Our first inspection was huge with 30 people through, Don handled with ease and kept us updated with offers and any interest on the property. Don managed to get the price we wanted and all under the time frame we had set! This guy knows his stuff and i will certainly be recommending him in the future! Thank you Don and the team at PRD.
Don Is The Best!From the moment we met Don we knew that he had the experience, passion and industry knowledge to sell our house! We saw many agents ....but Don was the first to really be excited and see the potential in our home. We always knew that to get top dollar ....we needed someone else to be as passionate about our home as we were!
Thanks DonThis is the second time we have used Don to purchase a property and the fist time for selling one, we have found Don to be approachable and friendly with a knack of knowing exactly what to do to get the best result for all parties. Any time we had a question or a concern Don was always available and happy to help . We were given a realistic evaluation of our property and were rewarded with a quick sale at a realistic price. In our opinion Don was the right man for the job and wouldn't hesitate to use his services again ! Thank you Don.
9 Belltower Avenue SaleDon Hanlon and the team were very professional in their approach to selling our house. We were extremely grateful to be able to sell it within a short time frame. Thank-you for all your hard work.
Don Was Able To Do What I Asked & In Good TimeCame, saw, priced, advertised, sold.
Thanks for all your help Don, look forward to dealing with you again in the future.
Rating Of Don HanlonDon Hanlon from PRD was very helpful in every way with the recent sale of my property in Mt Helen. From the outset he told me that he would always be available for discussion and advice. He was. Our phone and onsite meetings were always decisive and the final outcome was as good as could be expected in the present market climate. Many thanks Don.
Respectful, Honest & Straight ForwardThis was a particularly difficult undertaking for me due to a big life bump!! Don exudes credibility by delivering upon his word, therefore developing trust and confidence in this collaboration. He has an engaging personality and thorough work effort. What can I say ... Job superbly done!
Great AgentDon was professional in every aspect of the process from beginning to conclusion of the sale. He kept me informed and acted promptly on my requests. I would recommend Don for all real estate needs, he knows his stuff. Great job Don.
An Agent With IntegrityI could not rate Don Hanlon high enough. I sent an email inquiry to the PRD website expecting to wait days to be contacted. However, in less than two hours I received a call from Don Hanlon who had with him a complete history of the property, a full list of the recent sales within the area and an estimated evaluation. Needless to say I was more than impressed. From that moment I was convinced that Don Hanlon was a true professional and would be an outstanding agent. Which by all accounts he was. What impressed me most was that Don Hanlon was always true to his word. He replied promptly to emails, he always called after an open inspection giving me an honest update and he was available at any time. I was interstate at the time of sale and had tenants at the property. Don Hanlon was able to negotiate both my needs as a vendor and the needs and rights of the tenant. The tenant praised Don Hanlon's respectful and flexible approach and I was at all times confident that Don Hanlon would not create problems for me with the tenant agency. The property was sold quickly and I was happy with the price. Don Hanlon provided a number of different advertising options, and I believe between the right advertising tools and Don Hanlon's amazing skill was why I as a vendor was happy with the sale. An agent with integrity, who would have thought?
We Were In Good HandsDon was always highly professional, managing both the needs of ourselves as vendors, and those of the buyer. He had strong market knowledge, was always willing to discuss any concerns, and consistently planned ahead and trouble-shooted any issues. We've since recommended Don to others and would be happy to again.
Don Hanlon At PRD BallaratThe recent marketing of our home in central Ballarat by PRD, & more specifically, by Don Hanlon, has proven to be a far less stressful process than we had been anticipating. From our first contact with Don, through the appraisal, marketing, sale & after-sale phases, communication has been honest, open and frequent. Don listened carefully to our requests and expectations and formulated a marketing strategy that attracted numerous potential buyers within our agreed price range. Don worked exceptionally hard during the Christmas holiday period to ensure that our home continued to attract the attention of qualified buyers. Following each inspection, Don provided us with prompt and realistic feedback, and within a matter of weeks we achieved an offer on our property that met our expectations in every way. We were delighted with Don's handling of our sale and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering in the Ballarat region. Many thanks to all at PRD for a job very well done.
Don's ChallengeWe asked Don to sell our home at the price we wanted and with some initial restrictions that he may not normally have. But the big challenge for him was to sell it in an area that had not had any comparisons in our high price range, and with some stating that it would not reach the asking price. He chose and screened prospective buyers well and understood their needs and ours. He knew we had a good product and worked hard to achieve our sale and gave us a great outcome. We can now move on to our next challenge, the new owners will be very happy in this home, and we're sure Don will be working hard for his many future clients. Thank you
Don HanlonDon is the real estate agent you can trust to professionally sell your house. He listened and understood my goals in selling, and was very easy to work with, always keeping me in the loop. My house sold when I was overseas, he diligently kept me up to date via messenger which was a relief to not have to worry about a thing while I was away.
Speedy SaleBoth Margareta and I were surprised at the speed of the sale. Don worked hard to achieve this, top marks that man!
Great EffortDon has been fantastic over a long journey! Very professional, knowledgeable of the market and commercial and always tried his hardest to achieve a good result - No hesitation in recommending him.
Hi Michael, so sorry for delayed message - I am doing extra shifts so working around the clock. Michael thank you and a big thank you to your wonderful staff, your feedback and notifications have been fantastic. I am so happy I trusted my inner feelings and changed real estate. That is fantastic news Michael, I have recommended PRD to all friends who are doing investment properties in that location. Thank you for you feedback!
Just to let you know I am extremely happy with Michael Darken, who looks after my properties. His communication, including prompt feedback is excellent. This is one of the most important things to me. I would recommend him to any other landlord with a rental property.
Thank you Don Hanlon. Been a pleasure to deal with you. Looking forward to our new place in Miners Rest. I hope we can do further business in the future.
Well done Don. It took a bit longer than we had hoped but with your perseverance and encouragement, we got there!
I found Jason to be a fine young man. At all times he was friendly, highly professional and honest! It was a delight to buy a property where Jason was the agent.
I received excellent personalised service from Robert McClure and Hannah White. They were always on hand to answer any type of question, regardless of how small or trivial it may have been. Attention to detail and their professionalism was appreciated, guiding me through an often confusing and challenging procedure, resulting in a most favourable outcome.

After not having bought or sold a property for 43 years we found our experience with PRDnationwide, Robert McClure & Hannah White most satisfactory and very helpful. Our journey through selling our property has been made stress free as possible due to the follow up calls, helpful information and professionalism of the team that worked for us. We would like to thank all at PRDnationwide for their work in selling our property.
From our first discussion, Neil, Jim and Hannah have been honest, informative, friendly and patient with our families considerations. Jim's advice proved accurate and his arranged maintenance contractors were prompt and effective. The property sold more quickly than we anticipated and for a better price than PRD and other agents estimated. We are very satisfied clients of PRDnationwide Ballarat. Thank you Jim and your team.
Dear Melanie, This is a long overdue but very, very much meant email of praise for PRD's Michael Darken who has been simply exceptional in every way and on every level managing one very difficult and time wasting tenant currently ensconced in 152 Humffray Street, my long suffering little investment property. What a time that little house and Michael have had with the incumbent!!! Not to mention me! Michael is always professional, considered, calm and careful and approaches every new situation (and there have been many) with confidence. I have appreciated absolutely everything he has done. I know he has not enjoyed the processes that the tenant has put him through and whilst it might be his job to put up with troublesome tenants he does it with good grace and patience. Which is something I simply could not summon in his shoes. So thank you Michael and I wanted to acknowledge it formally to you, Melanie, whom I assume is his boss: - he's doing a fine and fancy job of it and he should absolutely be cherished because I'd have thrown in the towel by now. Best wishes to you, Thanks to Michael,
Hello Rob and Hannah, The settlement for 5 Nathanael Place, Ballarat East has been booked on 04 April 2017. Thank you for being my agent and you have provided me the excellent and professional services. I am really appreciated about your work and help!!! It was a very good experience for me. I am not good at IT and I couldn’t add my comments to your website. Sorry about that…..All the best wishes to you and your families!!!
From the time the house in James Street was listed on the market with PRDnationwide, I was kept informed about every detail about the sale of the property. Everything was done very professionally. Thank you Don for your time and effort that was put into the sale of the property. A great result!
This is the third time that we have used PRD and once again were extremely pleased with the friendly, helpful and professional service. Rob provided prompt clear feedback each time our property was inspected. He is an excellent communicator and kept us fully informed at every stage
I have recently contracted PRD to manage the sale of the property 222 Clyde St Soldiers Hill. I have had to do this remotely from Adelaide. I have found the work of your staff, both Joanne Stevens and Casey Horgan, to be considerate, courteous and efficient and they have made the task so much easy for me. Casey has been an excellent liaison and I wanted to take the opportunity to praise her efforts to you. I would happily recommend PRD to anyone requiring your services in future.
Instant Success With Chris LeonardOur house was on the market for 11 months with another real estate agency and we had received little interest from potential buyers. After this time, we decided it was time to make a change and made contact with Chris Leonard from PRD Ballarat. When Chris came on board, it was like a large weight had been lifted off our shoulders. His constant communication, status updates, honesty, recommendations and courtesy all made the process a much easier one. Chris' drive to make a sale and putting in 110% at all times, resulted in our house selling in just five weeks. If only we had have found him sooner! I must mention that we have sold other property through agents in Ballarat and while these were not bad experiences, we had never experienced Chris' level of service before. Chris' professionalism and great nature is an asset to PRD. We have given Chris more of our business and will continue to in the future. I have and will always recommend Chris to others. I wish him all the best.
Sale Of PropertyGreat service providing us all the tools to help us in selling our property and achieving the best possible price great job done by all the team. Thanks a lot
Jason BirchWould highly recommend Jason as an agent. Amazing communication skills. Always helpful with any questions we had. Very happy with all aspects of this sale.
Fantastic Outcome!Brian and I are very pleased with the quick sale of our home. Jason was a pleasure to deal with. He kept us informed on the progress of our steps to a final sale. Well done Jason!
Excellent AgentAfter months with another agent, we contacted Jason to negotiate the timely sale of our property. Within 2 weeks, we had a buyer and had agreed on a sale price. Jason was very knowledgeable about the market, enthusiastic about selling our property and always kept us informed of the sale process. Highly recommend.
Selling With Jason Birch & PRD BallaratI found my dealings with Jason as A1 when recently selling/marketing our property. He is extremely professional, he makes sure your kept in the loop as soon as relevant and serious information comes to hand. No question of mine seemed to trivial. He was always contactable on the phone and if he did miss my call would call back very shortly after. This meant questions weren't left unattended for long which was great. Jason's appraisals of our property proved to be very accurate. I have no hesitation in dealing through Jason to either buy or sell my next property as I found him very professional, ethical and honest to do business with.
Overall SatisfactionGood knowledge, communication a little poor about sale decision, presumption without consultation. Offer was great but we should have been given opportunity to consider rather than being told "I am getting the contract signed can you come down and sign the vendor statement". Presumption that we would agree, which we would have but consultation should have occurred. Rob was very good at negotiating the best price for the sale.
Selling Our House Was Made A Breeze By The AgentsWe are extremely happy with our experience. Our house sold in under a week with no fuss at all. We were kept involved at all times and are rapt with the outcome.
Satisfied CustomersAs per past property sales we were pleased recently when Rob sold our family home. His customer service was second to none communicating daily on the progress of the sale, in a professional and friendly manner. The evaluation on our home was spot on and achievable which was reflected in the sale price. Thank you for a great service Rob.
Happy CustomersAwesome service.
Friendly & HelpfulRob has gone out of his way to help us with our purchase and perpetration for the move. We are very grateful to him.
Property Sale Review From Satisfied VendorAlthough I previously didn't know Rob that well and could have chosen other agents I knew personally or better, I decided to opt for Rob as I had heard from my clients & colleagues in the finance industry that had used Rob's services that he was hard working and diligent in following up leads etc. I certainly found this to be the case with Rob in dealing with my property sale and he kept me informed at all times, was very personable and professional. I would certainly recommend Rob if looking to sell your property.
Robert McClureRobert sells a lot of our projects and new houses that we build throughout Ballarat. We have formed a great trusting relationship over many years. Robert understands our product and provides us with professional and exceptional service every time. He has a thorough understanding of the local property market and I would have no problem recommending Robert to sell your house.
Well Done & Easy To Deal WithWe found Rob to be very easy to work with and very informative with all communications. Rob kept us informed at all levels. I have recommend Rob to other people.
Great ExperienceReceived fantastic service from Robert & would recommend him to anyone looking at either selling or purchasing a home. He makes the whole process very easy to understand & not at all stressful.
Rob McClureWe found Rob to be friendly and he kept us up to date with what was going on with the sale of our house. We were impressed with the fact that we could make suggestions that he was quite happy to discuss and come to a reasonable compromise. Our house sold within two weeks of hitting the market so I think that says it all.
The Most Competent AgentRob McClure did an amazing job with our house. He sold it at very close to its market value which is very impressive. The main aspect of Rob's excellence is his communication with us. He kept us informed of every tiny development with the house and provided valuable feedback that helped with the sale. I believe that as far as real estate agents go, Rob is one in a million.
I would like to sincerely thank you for your incredible effort in running another successful Cycle Classic Fundraiser for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute. The funds raised will help the institute to continue the important work in the area of cancer research. The Ballarat Cycle Classic is the largest single fund-raising event for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute. You should be very proud of your role in this event.
We found Robert McClure and PRDnationwide's service in selling our unit to be excellent. We were constantly informed what was happening and we were never left wondering. The people on the telephone were always courteous and helpful and got back to us about any queries very quickly. Thank you PRDnationwide for a job well done.
We would like to pass our sincerest thanks to Chris Leonard for the great assistance he has provided in our Biggest Morning Tea held Friday the 29 of May 2009. Specifically, Chris conducted an auction, selling a large number of items which has been donated by many local businesses and individuals. He was not only very efficient but also extremely funny and entertaining. Due in no small part to Chris' efforts, we were able to raise in excess of $2300 the day for the Cancer Council. Please accept our appreciation for the opportunity we have had in benefiting from Chris' talent and skills. I have known Chris both personally and professionally for over 10 years and am in no doubt that he must be extremely valuable to the PRDnationwide organisation. Again, thank Chris and best wishes to you.
We were very happy we placed our property for sale with PRD Ballarat, who achieved a very prompt sale for us. Don Hanlon was a very courteous and helpful agent. Thankyou PRD.
Brenden and the team are very professional. They know the business of selling and amazed me with their follow up and attention to detail. I have used Brenden's services twice now and would not hesitate in using him again or providing a glowing report to all who ask. I sold and purchased again this time and was introduced to Chris Leonard in our purchase. Nothing was too much trouble and he was helpful and courteous. The team at PRDnationwide care about their customers not just sales quotes. Thank you.
We found your agents totally professional at all times. We found we could ring Chris at anytime and did not feel like we were bothering him. They were upfront about their fees, so we knew what to expect. Very happy with the service. We would recommend them to anyone. Thank you PRDnationwide. P.S They also gave us a realistic quote for our sale. P.P.S Thank you for our gift voucher.
Many thanks to Chris & staff at PRDnationwide with the recent sale of our property at Snake Valley. The service & friendly manner in which it was completely was excellent. Thank You Chris.
I had no hesitation in engaging PRDnationwide to market my three properties at Scarsdale. I purchased my properties through Chris Leonard six years prior to selling. Being able to talk with a person who knew me and recognised the amount of work I had done to the property over the years made it an easy pathway. I respected Chris as a person. I could easily engage in discussion or debate and know he would listen and consider my point of view and needs. My choice of agent was rewarded with all three properties being sold quickly and appropriate prices gained. I wish to sincerely thank Chris and staff at PRDnationwide for their respect, courtesy and patience. Their dedication and hard work was exemplary. Thank you.
If you need to make some dough, we recommend you give Chris a go. His availability is twenty four/seven, the pitch sounds like real estate heaven. But texting, he won't want to know!
Denise and I would like to thank you for the great help that you provided using buying the rural property at Pootilla. Your ability to organise things with a smile, like repairs, changing service providers, settlement etc, was much appreciated. Your assistance at every turn made the purchaser very easy and pleasurable. We have been telling our friends about your great service and we would be gladly recommend you to any buyer or seller.
Having both bought and sold property through PRDnationwide, we have been fortunate enough to experience the full spectrum of their professional services. In both instances we have been impressed with the high level of customer service and the pride they clearly take in this. Again, in both instances, we have had the pleasure of dealing predominately with Chris Leonard, an agent of the utmost professionalism and calibre. He is never 'off the clock', his customer service is exceptional and he truly cares for his clients. Nigel and I thank you wholeheartedly Chris, for all you have done to assist us. In general, we unreservedly recommend and praise the exceptional service PRDnatinowide offers. We couldn't have asked for better. Thank you.
Chris, We cant thank you and your team enough on the effort that was given in selling our property. You were very professional and made the process very easy and stress free for us. You always made that time to chat and always kept us informed about the progress you were making. We would highly recommend you and your team to anyone looking to sell their property. We hope that the new owners enjoy the house as much as we did. Thank you again!
l have found Chris Leonard to be helpful and effective at his job and widely respected. Thanks for the service.
As usual, communication was fantastic with Chris. We were very happy with the service, price and attitude. Changing sale tactics worked great for us and we were consulted regularly about the changes and the market. Great job Chris, keep up the good work.
Since contacting PRDnationwide on the sale of our property, we found them most helpful and friendly and we were very happy with the outcome. Thank you guys.
All went smoothly. Moved in and getting settled. Thanks for your help with the purchase Don. We were very impressed with your attitude and all your assistance in finalizing the sale. Much appreciated.
We, the undersigned, recently purchased a residential property in Invermay Park, through your company & Don Hanlon was the agent through whom we dealt. We would like it known that he was a thorough gentleman & treated us with the utmost courtesy, honesty & respect throughout the whole process. He was as good as his word on every occasion & we are very satisfied/happy with his help. If we have an occasion to have further real estate dealings in the future, Don is the one we would seek out. We can do nothing but recommend his services to any prospective clients.
WOW: - what a relief to have real personal care, understanding and support at such a stressful time. Every assistance was offered and I very much appreciated the after settlement follow up. PRDnationwide (Ballarat) has changed my mind on real estate agents, especially due to and with many thanks to Chris Leonard. I would definitely recommend their services. Happy customer.
Thanks again for the assistance. I am most impressed with the professionalism displayed by you and your company.
Dennis & I, Zoe, have been very happy with Chris Leonard. Always warm, never pushy, punctual and responsive. He had a lay back approach but an eye for what we were looking for. So greatful he presented 46 W H! But sorry Brenden - you lose brownie points; you didn't ring back.
Thankyou for your help with the purchase of our new property in Wendouree. We were made to feel you we're acting on our behalf as well as the vendor. Thankyou for making time for us and keeping us informed with the progression of the purchase. We both admire your professionalism and gentlemanly manner. Looking forward to settlement day. P.S. The rellies were impressed too!
Bruce and Joan Hopkins would like to congratulate and thank PRDnationwide for the lovely flowers when we first put our house with you for sale. A big thankyou to Don Hanlon your real estate agent for his wonderful help right from day one even before we had our house for sale. We had a visit in our area doing evaluations and he kept in touch because he knew we were thinking of selling and was in the area and called in just as we were swapping agents from another real estate who we were very disappointed with. Don has been professional, helpful and a great person to deal with. Thank again PRDnationwide and Don Hanlon.
The service that was given to me, in the purchase of my new home by all the staff, but in particular Don Hanlon was just fantastic and if I ever hade to move again (hopefully not) I would definitely put your PRD Ballarat on the top of my list. And Don, thank you sincerely.
Margaret and I are happy to report that we found Don Hanlon of PRD to be most helpful and took a very professional approach in assisting us to find a home in Ballarat. In particular we found Don to be very patient with us in his efforts to find us the right home for our retirement. We have no hesitation in recommending Don or PRDnationwide to any of our friends or acquaintances seeking to purchase a house in Ballarat.
Thankyou for the opportunity to give feedback on my recent experience with PRDnationwide. I cannot comment highly enough on the professionalism of Don Hanlon. Right from the start he explained the whole process and kept us up to date with every aspect of the sales campaign from beginning to end. His belief and enthusiasm was incredible when he inspected the property for the first time and continued through the whole process. He explained the costs related to the campaign, contacted us after each open house to let us know of any interest, introduced us to the auctioneer, who explained how things would proceed on auction day. On auction day we met and confirmed reserve details. At the conclusion of the auction we met with the purchaser to sign contracts, which, while being formal was very relaxed. PRDnationwide are extremely lucky to have someone like Don Hanlon as a part of their sales team.
We recently purchased a residential property in Ballarat through PRDnationwide with Don Hanlon as the selling agent. Don phoned us immediately the property was listed for sale and arranged for us to inspect it that same day while we were up from Melbourne. He was completely honest and open about all aspects of the property, allowing us to make a quick but informed decision to purchase it. He then liaised closely with the vendors and organised promptly to obtain the necessary paperwork from the vendor's solicitor. All of the exchange of documents was carried out smoothly and efficiently via email, thus saving us from having to make repeat trips to Ballarat. Once the sale had been confirmed, Don very kindly offered to show us through the house once more, since he was mindful of the fact that we had only seen it on one occasion. We are delighted with our purchase and with Don's handling of the buying process and we are looking forward to moving to Ballarat early in the New Year.
We put our house on the market about 3 & a 1/2 years ago. We went with 'Rayner' from Ballan. In 2 years we had 3 inspections, no calls back, no-one bothered to tell us anything. So they got the flick! We were a bit apprehensive to try again, but we had to sell! So we chose PRDnatinowide Ballarat, Chris Leonard came out to talk to us. We were impressed with him; he said "I'll stick with you till we sell". He did and we sold within 12 months. We had plenty of inspections, lots of feedback, we never felt alone. PRDnationwide worked for us and they worked hard, especially Chris Leonard. We are very grateful to them, I'm glad we made that choice!
We would not hesitate in recommending Chris Leonard and his team at PRDnationwide to anyone interested in purchasing or selling real estate in the Ballarat area. Chris was impressive from the start. He met us late on a Saturday afternoon, as he was busy with various open houses and other appointments that day (always a good sign for prospective sellers). Due to his extensive local knowledge, he was able to accurately forecast who our buyer would be and what price we could realistically expect. Chris kept in regular contact via email and phone, making timely suggestions during the course of the campaign and followed every aspect of the sale through to completion.
We received excellent service in regards to the purchase of our property. All our queries/questions were answered in a timely manner, which was great. We were kept informed and followed up by PRD staff when required. Very happy.
We are writing to you to pass on our sincere thanks to your agents Robert McClure and Samantha McIntosh for their amazing effort in selling our home in such a very short space of time. After a very disappointing experience with another Ballarat agent, having Robert and Samantha work for us was like a breath of fresh air. Robert mentioned on our first meeting that PRD could sell our home within a week and we thought couldn't possibly be done but he stuck by his word. We will certainly recommend PRD in the future to family and friends. Once again thank you for our wonderful experience with your company.
We chose Robert and his team to sell our home. It was the best decision we made. His professionalism and attention to detail stands out from any other agent. Well done Rob on selling our home and getting the price we wanted not to mention how quickly it sold! I would have no hesitation in using Rob as our agent again and highly recommend him to anyone.
I have no hesitation in recommending Rob McClure from PRDnationwide in selling your property or land. He was a true professional who kept me up to date and informed at all times. After each prospective buyer was shown through my house, Rob rang each time to let me know what they thought. He followed up on any interest and gave me insight on how best to present my home to generate a quick sale.
Rob McClure also acted as our real estate agent for our property at 27 Victoria Avenue, Lake Wendouree. Rob was a delight to work with in the sale of our 2 properties. He communicated with clients very well and kept us informed. We never felt that any enquiry was a bother. Rob was great at reassuring us and provided regular updates. He clearly has a passion for his work in real estate and this was always evident. Thoroughly professional and wouldn't hesitate to recommend PRD and Rob to anyone we know. Many thanks to him.
I can highly recommend PRDnationwide and in particular Robert McClure whether for buying or selling your property. We recently purchased a property and the help we received was fantastic, nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you for your sound advice, support and guidance, it certainly made the process of buying a property a lot easier.
We found Robert McClure to be the most proffesional agent we have dealt with and felt extremely secure with him negotiating the sale of our house. We would recommend Robert McClure to any perspective seller.
We were very impressed with the level of service and attention Rob McClure gave to us for duration of the sale process. Rob kept us appraised of all stages/inspections/prospects and we felt comfortable that Rob kept the momentum alive despite 2 prospective buyers withdrawing initial offers. Rob's experience and knowledge of the Ballarat real estate market was evident throughout the sale. Rob's ability to set a realistic price range meant we achieved the price we wanted with no unrealistic expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending or utilizing PRD or Rob McClure's services for future purchasers or business.
I would like to thank Robert McClure for the service that he provided in purchasing my property. His attention to detail and his explanation of this, simplified my transaction.
We recently purchased this property via Robert McClure. The process was very smooth and Robert was very professional at all times throughout the process. I would highly recommend dealing with PRDnationwide and in particular Robert McClure whether your buying or selling. You will not be disappointed!
The whole of our experience with you over Peregrine Court was as close to ideal as I have ever imagined a real estate transaction could be. I have made this known to my friends at Ballarat. I would have no hesitation in recommending you as someone to use in connection with real estate transactions in Ballarat. Having been in real estate, I'm very aware that the successfullness of a transaction is greatly assisted by very clear, specific briefing and would add that to anyone asking my advice. It was a very real pleasure dealing with you Don and if I am ever involved in a real estate transaction in Ballarat, I'd prefer it to be with you.
I just wanted to say a formal thank you for all the great work you have done with 12 Oliver Street, Ballarat East in preparing and undertaking the tenant inspections and qualifications, securing a prompt lease at the advertised rate together with co-ordinating the tradies to undertake various works since the settlement. It is a lot of work requiring quality, consistency and continuity. Let's keep up the good work ahead. Once again, many thanks for your efforts.
We would like to thank Chris for the wonderful experience in purchasing our new home. He has been generous with his precious time and very sensitive to our needs. We also found Chris to be polite and genuine with a 'can do' attitude and no query too hard to resolve.
Robert was extremely professional, friendly and capable. We were very pleased indeed with his efforts on our behalf, which were as good as we could possibly hoped for.
My contact with my agent was always regular, polite and professional. Don did a great job managing the sale to cautious purchaser. I was satisfied with the price we got and would use Don again if (God forbid) we move on.
My initial contact via one of the real estate websites received a prompt and friendly reply. Although the agent was unavailable, she passed my enquiry onto a colleague who was similarly prompt in response. Don Hanlon was generous with his time and knowledge above and beyond what I have come to expect. Along with his professionalism, being treated as a person, rather then simply another buyer, made working with Don a great pleasure.
I would like to congratulate Kristy Hadler and Chris Leonard on the recent sale of my property at 6 Vowles Street, Skipton. Their courteous and helpful manner in all our dealings was much appreciated. It made the sale a much more enjoyable occasion with their professional handling.
We felt comfortably supported throughout the buying process. Don dealt with all the necessary matter and was able to answer all our questions with respect and courtesy.
Dear Chris Leonard, it was a pleasure doing business with you. The communications were clear from the moment of pre purchase to purchasing the home. Your manner and communications were exceptional and I can see why you are in real estate. I would not hesitate doing business with PRD in the future.
From the first moment I met Don Hanlon I felt relaxed and confident he would look after me and sell my house with professionalism and honesty. I knew he was acting for me as the seller not for the buyer. He was very sincere and encouraging. I felt comfortable giving him the job of the sale of my house. Nothing I asked for was a problem. He went out of his way to make sure I was informed of what was happening with the sale of my house and if he showed people through what their feed back was. He even helped organize someone to mow my lawns and fix the small problems as they arose. I live in Melbourne and didn't know anyone in Ballarat to do these small jobs that were required. Don always made time for me and made me feel that my thoughts or worries were his top priority. I would recommend PRD to anyone I know and feel confident they would get the top quality care and help that I was given. Thank you Don for everything and acting so professionally and sincerely, it was a great experience dealing with you and PRD.
Robert has been fantastic in looking after both vendor and buyer's rights. He kept the bargain process in a professional way. He's very thorough in his work and keen to help me in purchasing this property. I do make a small comment about your company's price offer process. I believe sending back an official offer on a paper is far, far more efficient and effective in closing the deal, at least in my case as I work full time. It took me 4 days to only offer 3 times due to the fact I needed to physically come into your office and signed the full contract. But overall, I do appreciate Mr McClure's professional service.
Chris Leonard assisted us with the purchase of our new home and we could not have been happier with all aspects of the purchase. Great experience, thank you very much.
Don Hanlon has been very helpful in finding me a house to move into and buy, also with the financial side of things. Don has been in contact with me on plenty of occasions in looking for the right property.
Dear Mr Jens, RE: Chris Leonard. Over the past few years my husband, Andrew and l have been on the hunt for a rural property that has been suited for horses. We have been peaking and viewing properties with Chris Leonard and what Andrew and l have both found is that you could not ask for someone better. He has always gone above and beyond his duty as a sales person. We did end up finding us a home which sadly wasn't through Chris or your company however, he was very happy for us when we informed him....and yes he will be getting an invite to our home for a BBQ with his family. When the time comes that we want to sell, we will be using Chris for the sale. If we know of anyone else that is about to put their house on the market we will be highly recommending him too! Chris Leonard has always shown true professionalism with his job and is always well presented and pleasant, just simply a true gentleman!
We have been pleased with the service provided by Rob McClure and the team at PRDnationwide (Jens Gaunt). From the initial meeting with Rob at our home, he always provided accurate information, relevant advice and positive encouragement, throughout the process of selling our home. Rob was able to give realistic suggestions with regard to preparing the house for sale. He always returned phone calls promptly and kept in touch throughout the course of the sale. The other members of the PRDnationwide team was assisted with open homes and house inspections were also pleasant, helpful and thoroughly professional. l am happy to recommend Rob McClure and the team at PRDnationwide.
Jones and Samantha Asirifi - Otchere would like to express our sincere appreciation to Chris Leonard, Kristy and the team at PRDnationwide for the care, excellent communication and professional manner in which they oversaw the sale of our Cape Clear property. The property was sold within two months of it going on the market. l would highly recommend the services of Chris Leonard and the team of PRDnationwide to my friends who are looking to buy or sell their property. Once again a big THANK YOU to Chris.
We would like to offer our sincere appreciation to your Real Estate Agent, Chris Leonard. His knowledge of the local area & guidance throughout the entire sales process was of great assistance in our decision to purchase our new home. During our first impromptu & lengthy discussion, he answered all of our many & varied questions relating to the area of Gordon, the local facilities and the homes on the market. He took the time to listen and made sure we understood his answers, always offering us good advice. Chris has an extremely approachable demeanor and always available to show us each property without delay. Nothing was ever too much trouble. He continuously kept us informed & readily accepted our decision to change our mind, even after putting in the time & effort to show us the same properties more than once. It has been a pleasure to have Chris acting on our behalf & commend his help & expertise during our search for our new home. It has been a stress free & thoroughly rewarding journey.
Hello to all at PRD. On behalf of all of us we appreciate the quality of service and the attention to detail. The sales strategy was well communicated and it was obviously effective as the property sold in a short interval of time. We all were impressed with the consistent feedback. i.e updating all parties concerning the sale of the property. The only minor criticism was that the proposed advertisement has an error which was detected prior to publication. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company.
We first met Rob McClure when we went to the 'open house' at 22 Parkview Drive, Alfredton. Rob was most professional and friendly to us and answered any of our questions. He knew we were really interested in the property. Our contact with Rob, when we sold our house was then done via Matt Edwards (our selling agent). Both men worked together with Rob working hard to enable us to purchase the property he was selling. For that, we thank him very much. We would recommend Rob and PRD to anyone selling or buying a home! We thank Rob also for getting Matt Edwards (his recommendation) to help sell our home. Roselyn & Peter Nunn
My experience with PRD was a positive one. From the moment I met with my agent Don Hanlon I felt more relaxed and hopeful and realised that it was the right decision to change agents. The previous five months were with another estate agent, had left me exhausted and completely deflated. Don was positive and confident and had the determination that inspired me to trust him. I was introduced to his partner Neville Dooly and together they formed a plan. Don and Neville are an incredible team, completely focused on selling my property re - assuring and supporting me every step of the way and they delivered a positive sale at auction in five weeks. Neville the auctioneer was experienced and worked hard for that positive result, backed by Don and friendly & helpful staff at the office working together for a positive outcome for their client. This has been a great experience for me, positive from the beginning to the end. Sincere and grateful thanks to you all for helping me to move on with the rest of my life!
From the very first contact we found Chris Leonard to be very friendly and helpful. No task was too difficult for him and he met our requests in a timely way. We are very happy with our dealings with Chris. We would also like to make special mention of Kristy Hadler for her administrative assistance in finalising the deal. The timing for the closure of the deal was very tight as we were going on holidays the next day. With the deal being settled very late in the afternoon and Chris coming to meet us late to get the documents signed. All hiccups sorted thanks to Chris & Kristy. Rhonda & Trevor Davis
Hi Don, Just a quick note to thank you for your efforts in obtaining a good outcome in the sale of Humffray Street. Based on an independent valuation done 2 years ago, I believe the sale price achieved was at the top of the range.
Thank you Chris for the great help you gave us when selling our home. I really appreciated your continued contact with us and keeping us up to date. Thanks too to Matt for his part in the sale. I have found PRD very professional in the sale of our home. The team effort was superb and I have great confidence in recommending PRD to anyone thinking of selling. For service, attention to detail, great communication and making things easy I couldn't have asked for more.
We were very impressed with the entire team at PRDnationwide Ballarat with the organisation, advice and sale of our property. Don Hanlon was always keeping us well informed of every inspection that occurred and also provided detailed comments and feedback from all of the potential buyers. It was a great relief to have the sale sorted very quickly as being a vacant property we did not want to see it sitting empty for too long. The marketing was great and simplified and Tiarne Keighrey was on the ball with all aspects of the sale advertising etc. Thanks PRD and if we need a Real Estate Agent in Ballarat in the future we will visit your office.
Dear Don, Thank you for all your hardwork involved in the sale of 2 Haymes Crescent. I'm certain that we wouldn't have achieved the result that we did without your tenacity. All the best Andrea Dennett.
Don was very thorough and professional. Our property sold for the anticipated amount in less than a week and Don was quick to communicate and kept us in the loop. Very satisfied.
Hi Rob, Thank you for the recipe book. Marg is a very keen and an excellent cook and is always looking for new recipes to try. Spain is not a region she has explored a lot but the book looks very enticing and I will look forward to being exposed to her offerings. We seemed to have moved quite quickly into city life and are enjoying our small house in Scotchmer Street. Despite that we have purchased a 2 storey balcony terrace at 63 Rushall Crescent, Fitzroy North and now have to move again in August. We are very satisfied with the service of PRD and yourself in particular, and would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends. Our agents here are similar to PRD. A large firm ( biggest in our area) with good sharing of commissions and happy salespeople. We are auctioning on 30th May after a 3 week campaign! Things are very different here. Once more thank you for your friendly and professional service. All the best Nick and Marg
After researching other agents, I was put in touch with Don Hanlon through a neighbour who knows Don personally. I was in the middle of renovating my kitchen so was in need of some advice as not to over capitalise. Don came around looked around the house, told me what and what not to do, gave me a valuation and went through how he would sell my house. I signed up on the spot. 2 weeks later kitchen done, my house went on the market, 5 weeks later the house was sold for a great price. Don did an awesome job, he kept me informed the whole way through. I found Don to be honest, reliable, punctual and thorough and above all a nice bloke. I would highly recommend PRD and in particular Don Hanlon. Thanks for everything.
I have just had PRDnationwide handle the sale of my mother's house in Delacombe. It was a traumatic time for us as Mum was about to enter permanent care, but Don Hanlon guided us through with his professional and caring manner. Mum is delighted with the outcome and can't speak highly enough of Don and his team. The house sold within two weeks and the transition has been painless. Thankyou to everyone involved.
Brendan gave us a good introduction. Well explained procedure and costing etc. Quick sale - Thanks Sam too! Too short settlement date - but you got that covered - with extra finance. All ok!
Thank you so much for the change of date in the circumstances and for acting so promptly in doing so. Your immediate understanding of the situation and immediate action has been very much appreciated. It is so great to know such a caring person. It was such a delight to meet you and to enjoy our long conversation covering a wide range of topics; even though I was being kicked under the table by Fuminori for talking too much! I was elated for the rest of the day. It is very impressive, in the circumstances that you currently find yourself in having to work and run a household, that you have so much energy and that you are so positive and project this to others. Thank you so much for giving me so much of your time. I hope that at some time in the future that circumstances may again give cause for us to met again. You are such a great representative of the company and must valued very highly.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful reference you gave me for the house I applied for and regret leaving PRD again but sadly I need to move to the other side of town to make it easier with my children, school, and work. I have always found you and the people of PRD to be amazing to deal with and hope my next agent will live up to your standards. As you know I am opening my own business soon and would love to see you again if ever you need anything mended or altered. Thanks again Stacey.
